How to enable app SideLoading feature in sharepoint 2013 foundation ?

I am getting path not found error when trying this,

$programFiles = [environment]::getfolderpath(“programfiles”)

add-type -Path $programFiles’\SharePoint Online Management Shell\’ + `
‘Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll’

Write-Host `
‘To enable SharePoint app sideLoading, ‘ + `
‘enter Site Url, username and password’

$siteurl = Read-Host ‘Site Url’
$username = Read-Host “User Name”
$password = Read-Host -AsSecureString ‘Password’

if ($siteurl -eq ”) {
$siteurl = ‘https://mytenant.sharepoint.com/sites/mysite’
$username = ‘me@mytenant.onmicrosoft.com
$password = ConvertTo-SecureString -String ‘mypassword!’`
-AsPlainText -Force
}
$outfilepath = $siteurl -replace ‘:’, ‘_’ -replace ‘/’, ‘_’

try
{
[Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext]$cc = `
New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($siteurl)

[Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials]$spocreds = `
New-Object `
Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($username, $password)

$cc.Credentials = $spocreds
$sideLoadingEnabled = `
[Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.appcatalog]::IsAppSideloadingEnabled($cc);

$cc.ExecuteQuery()

if($sideLoadingEnabled.value -eq $false) {
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Yellow `
‘SideLoading feature is not enabled on the site:’ $siteurl
$site = $cc.Site;
$sideLoadingGuid = `
new-object System.Guid “AE3A1339-61F5-4f8f-81A7-ABD2DA956A7D”
$site.Features.Add($sideLoadingGuid, $false, `
[Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.FeatureDefinitionScope]::None);
$cc.ExecuteQuery();
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green `
‘SideLoading feature enabled on site’ $siteurl
}

Else {
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green `
‘SideLoading feature is already enabled on site’ $siteurl
}
}

Catch {

You can enable side loading by activating the hidden Developer feature.

For that open up PowerShell and execute

Enable-SPFeature e374875e-06b6-11e0-b0fa-57f5dfd72085 –url siteurl
