Continuing my adventure with developing for a 64-bit XP environment. Has anyone installed PowerShell into this environment, and if so, how do I get the Execution Policy changed from Restricted to Remote Signed?

I'm installing PowerShell along with some other apps and using Wise Package Studio 8 to create an exe that does everything I want. With regards to PowerShell, I install it, then am trying to change the Execution Policy so I can run some scripts.

So far I've tried this code directly in Wise Script Editor:

item: Execute Program
Command Line=-nologo -executionpolicy bypass -noprofile -file "script.ps1"

Then I tried this as a .bat and a .cmd file and executed it via my Wise script:

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe" Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Then I tried compiling the batch file to an exe and executing that in my Wise script.

But in the end, same result: never works in Wise. The cmd and bat files work if I run them on the target PC, but if I try firing them from my Wise script, no luck. The exe doesn't work at all, possibly because of the compiler I used, but just guessing.

Any suggestions?

i would suggest you look here. there is a pretty good admin guide for general powershell tips such as this.

Could it be that the issue here might be related to a previous post you made on Appdeploy ? As I said in my reply to that post, it is my understanding that compiled WiseScript executables always run in 32-bit mode, so this might account for the different behaviour you are seeing.
