Hi All,

I'm trying to utilize the parameter feature introduced in the v4 release, but I'm running into an error.  I can only seem to get properties to work...and I have tried passing the parameters using single quotes and double quotes around both.  I used this post as an example:
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/psake-users/UKX3tBzOASE 

Any help here is greatly appreciated - I can also zip up the files if someone wants to try and run them locally.

Executing Call:
 
PowerShell .\_nuget\packages\psake.4.1.0\tools\psake.ps1 sampleScript.ps1 -parameters @{environmentNumber=%TestEnvironmentNumber%}

sampleScript.ps1 contents:

parameters {
    $environmentNumber = $null
}

Task default -depends Print-Properties
Task Print-Properties {
    
    Assert($environmentNumber -ne $null) "environmentNumber should not be null"
     Write-Host "Environment Number: $environmentNumber"}

Execution Output:
c:\dev\HgSilver\_Provision\NebTestEnvironment>PowerShell .\_nuget\packages\psake.4.1.0\tools\psake.ps1 sampleScript.ps1 -parameters @{environmentNumber=0} 
psake version 4.1.0
