Execution Policy error

Post by VivekK »

I was just trying to Power Studio and was writing simple get-addomaincontroller BUT when I ran it, it gave me error for execution policies.

I set execution policy as unristricted in form load and on button as well, but failed.

Anyone has any idea on this ?

NOTE: I dont want to set execution policy on system first and then run the program, that will beat the purpose, I would like the execution policies to either remain same or reverted back once the program deployed, written by this app, is used.

You cannot override domain execution policy. You cannot change execution policy in a script.

Run "Get-ExecutionPolicy -List" at a PS prompt to discover the settings.

Try packaging the script as an executable.
You don't say which PowerShell version you are using, so ....
