How can I prevent this, as I like to deploy the laptop through kiosk mode. I am trying to create a PowerShell command that reads a registy variable and then executes a command. I have a bunch of servers and one of them is the 'controller' for want of a better term. I need to 'Run As Administrator' on the remote machine in addition to passing the credentials object. I've updated that feedback item too. There is some interesting uses of this with web apps such as Chocolatey. Put the command in the scriptblock into double quotes, and then put a cmd.
Also, you can use double quotes inside the argumentlist if needed because it's enclosed in single quotes. Any idea how I can get this powershell command to run succesful? Are there spaces in any of the arguments you need to pass? Then I use a simple trick of passing all arguments inside double quotes to a function with 1 single parameter. This seemed to be the source of many minor headaches. What I tried to do I wanted to run Powershell. It works for me, but I am not sure exactly how your application works, or if that is even how you pass arguments to it. If you're running from cmd, why not just use the native commands? In splatting, we pass a hash table into a command and PowerShell spreads out the hash table contents to be used as parameters.
There is little advantage that I know of to use this over Start-Process. It turns out that the -NoProfile argument has to come before the file and parameters. It's not really an option for me to change the data to not have a space as I cannot always guarantee this. I had a similar issue here. Submit a request at the Hi, Thanks for everyone's suggestions, going through my script and the above I've narrowed the problem down to the parameters I am passing in.
What I ended up with was a few. I did change my powershell execution policy to be unrestricted both in the x86 and x64 consoles. The main thing I think is odd is that it worked fine from a batch file and it also works fine if not in a network share, which the batch file didn't have any problems with.

Probably a fairly quick and simple solution I am sure. Is there a special rule to know about parameters with spaces with PowerShell, or are you just suggesting to take it case-by-case, using EchoArgs to help? If you use a magic parameter --%, we stop our normal parsing of your command line and switch to something much simpler. The reason is that I can't really make it work dynamically. As far as the PowerShell parser is concerned, we simply defined an anonymous string. I am running Windows 2008 R2. My only suggestion would be to experiment. There is a slightly different solution by reading the registry.
Hi Adrian, Thanks for the post,would you please use the below code and just test if the remote ps enabled on the server2? Best regards, Dennis You can't pipeline to the New-Object cmdlet - you could use a ; to separate commands, but no matter how I've sliced and diced this I can't get the Remove-Item cmd to execute properly in this context. This is the string that finally worked. Dot-Sourcing Invoking a command either directly or with the call operator will create a child scope that will be thrown away when the command exits. This is useful to run a users input or to run code from a website or text file. PowerShell does not execute from the current directory without it.
So maybe there is problem with the saved file, rather than with your code. How can I fix this problem? I had this problem when I was evaluating the path dynamically. Also if the command or the path contains a space then this will fail. Use this parameter to submit commands to Windows PowerShell that require complex quotation marks or curly braces. However, when I press End Session, it takes you right back to the intranet.
