In an automation script (.ps1/.psm1),

Replace all uses of the cmdlet Get-BinRoot to use Get-ToolsLocation instead.


The PowerShell cmdlet is badly named, and was replaced with a new cmdlet called Get-ToolsLocation instead. The cmdlet is also deprecated in version 1.0.0 of Chocolatey and will be removed in version 2.0.0 so any calls to the cmdlet should no longer be made.
