Issues with Script Packager and Start Transcript

Post by TylerR » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:08 pm

I am having an issue when I compile my Script with V2 Host (Command Line) (for compatibility reasons) and attempt to start a transcript to collect the console messages. The script works just fine when running thru the normal PowerShell Console, but when I run as the compiled file. No issue with the V3 (Command Line) Host, but the servers I am working with do not like it.

What do I need to select to debug this; or is this a issue with the compiler?

The V2 compiler does not support transcripts like it says in the error. Tu will need to use a V3 or later version.
