Powershell Error: ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system

Run the below command to enable running of scripts

SetExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Force

If you are running from an 64-bit Machine, ensure you run this on both versions of Powershell including the x86 version

    When I am applying above command, I get following error message
    Error “SetExecutionPolicy : The term ‘SetExecutionPolicy’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file,
    or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and
    try again.”
    Because “-” dash is missing from the command “SetExecutionPolicy”. It should be “Set-ExecutionPolicy”. Following is correct command.
    Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Force
