Run simple powershell script

Post by leeboozer »

Can someone provide an example of running a simple powershell script from the app installation folder?

I can add the script to the installer, and the script gets installed fine.
But what to put in System --> Commands to execute the script from the app installation folder so far eludes me.

Try this:

Code: Select all

File: <SystemDir>\cmd.exe
Parameters: /C powershell.exe "<InstallDir>\script.ps1"

Thanks Leo. That almost worked. Windows had a fuss about the (x86) in the path.

It worked once I added apostrophes just inside the quotation marks:

Parameters: /C powershell.exe "'<InstallDir>\PostInstall.ps1'"
