dear all,

when i run this script form Doctor Scripto:

# Get Teams Configuration  
$FileContent=Get-Content -Path "$ENV:APPDATA\Microsoft\Teams\desktop-config.json"  
# Convert file content from JSON format to PowerShell object  
$JSONObject=ConvertFrom-Json -InputObject $FileContent          # <--- error  
# Update Object settings  
Get-Process Teams | Stop-Process -Force  
# Convert Object back to JSON format  
$NewFileContent=$JSONObject | ConvertTo-Json  
# Update configuration in file  
$NewFileContent | Set-Content -Path "$ENV:APPDATA\Microsoft\Teams\desktop-config.json"  

I keep on getting the fooling error and i cannot figure out what is going wrong:

ConvertFrom-Json : Ongeldige JSON-primitieve: C.  
At line:4 char:13  
+ $JSONObject=ConvertFrom-Json -InputObject $FileContent  
+             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [ConvertFrom-Json], ArgumentException  
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.ArgumentException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.ConvertFromJsonCommand  

the variable $FileContent contains the content of $ENV:APPDATA\Microsoft\Teams\desktop-config.json
