Try to use PowerShell script to bind a new certificate, but AddSslCertificate failed. Can you help?

Import-Module WebAdministration
$bindings = Get-WebBinding
Write-Host $bindings 

Get-WebBinding |
    Foreach-Object {
            $_.AddSslCertificate($newCert.Thumbprint,'My')
}
Got the following output with warning and error:

WARNING: Module WebAdministration is loaded in Windows PowerShell using WinPSCompatSession remoting session; please note that all input and output of commands from this module will be deserialized objects. If you want to load this module into PowerShell please use 'Import-Module -SkipEditionCheck' syntax.

    Did you follow the suggestion in the "WARNING:" message?

    If you want to load this module into PowerShell please use 'Import-Module -SkipEditionCheck' syntax.

    Deserialized objects don't have methods. They're text-only.
