Powershell 7 Kscript doesn't want to run

Hi there everyone. First time long time...


I've installed Powershell v7.1.3 to a windows server 2012 R2 box and can successfully run the command: Clear-RecycleBin -Force from the local desktop.

I've attempted to implement a daily script to automate this task. Efforts so far have been unsuccessful. Im stumped as to why.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.management/clear-recyclebin?view=powershell-7.1

NOTE! pwsh.exe is the Powershell7 executable that can be run from anywhere as its added to the PATH system variable.


I've tried two methods, both run as 'local system':

Using a dependency file (the file is simply a one liner Clear-RecycleBin -Force)

Debug Log

Running kbot: runkbot 119 1622608041 KBotScript::LogScriptInfo - Start id=119 name=Empty Recycle Bin version=1622608041 type=policy execute disconnected=false logged_off=true execute events KBotScript::LogScriptInfo - Finish KBotScript::LogScriptInfo - Start id=119 name=Empty Recycle Bin version=1622608041 type=policy execute disconnected=false logged_off=true execute events KBotScript::LogScriptInfo - Finish KBotScriptManager::CleanupDependencies - clean up dependencies in kbot directory C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\kbots_cache\\packages\kbots\119\ CleanupDependencies: file Clear-RecycleBin.ps1 is part of the dependency list, keep the file runkbot ----- launching [path='C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\kbots_cache\packages\kbots\119' program='pwsh.exe' parms='-nologo -executionpolicy bypass -WindowStyle hidden -noprofile -file "Clear-RecycleBin.ps1"' wait='true'] ----- runkbot ----- completed [exitCode=0] -----


Or calling the command as part of the parameters:

Can anyone spot where I'm going wrong? I'll add more information if its required.

Instead of using "Launch a program..." try "Run a batch file..." with your one line:

pwsh.exe -executionpolicy bypass -WindowStyle hidden -noprofile -Command "Clear-RecycleBin -Force"
