Have 2 postinstall tasks that get error in Kace (K2 v 3.6), error is return code 2, System cannot find file specified.  I have Kace stop on error and when I look at the Kace\apps\id# folder I can see the powerShell script there.  The command line of the the 2 post install scripts is:

powershell.exe -nologo -executionpolicy bypass -WindowsStyle hidden -noprofile -file "script.ps1"  

get error no matter if have " or not.  Any one have any idea why Kace cannot see the Powershell script in it's own folder?  Also When Kace stops I manually run the Powershell scripts from the Kace folder and they run with no errors.  I have tried this install on a Windows 8.1 and Win 7 and get same result.

  • when you look at the tasks xml file what "file type" does the task id think it is?
  • good question, is there any log in kace that would show that to me or do I need to try the scripted install again?
    • yea see the answer I posted so you can see the screen shots
  • Ok thanks very much. The File type is listed as exe on both the scripts. As for the other suggested fix I had found and tried that solution before I tried this current and was getting the same result. How would I get kace to see this as the proper file type?

on the kbox hover your mouse over the scripted install

look at the bottom of your browser and get the image id number.  In this case it is 4

 

then open the ikbox share

\\ikbox\peinst

and go to the scripts and find that task (task_4.xml in this case) and open in notepad
