TaskCentre Running PowerShell Scripts with the Run External Program Tool

The TaskCentre Run External Program tool can be used to run PowerShell scripts. The image below shows command line parameters for running such a script


The example above is a V2 PowerShell script.

With PowerShell V1 the –executionpolicy, remotesigned and sta arguments will not work. You will need to run PowerShell and run ‘set-execution policy remotesigned’ before this will work. To see the security implications of setting the execution policy see the PowerShell help (help set-executionpolicy).

To find out if you are running V1 or V2 the copyright message when you start up a PowerShell prompt will say (c)2006 for V1 or (c)2009 for V2.
