Same Code different results

Post by Westfield »

PowerShell Code
Double-click the code block to select all.
$s = $ENV:Path.Replace(';', "`n")
Write-Host "before $s"

New-PSDrive -Name P -Root "\\domainname\dfsroot" -PSProvider FileSystem

$ENV:Path += ';P:\Apps\PS\Scripts'

$s = $ENV:Path.Replace(';', "`n")
Write-Host "after $s"

If (Test-Path 'P:\Apps\PS\Scripts\Get-WFvolume.ps1')
	Write-Host "File Exist"

Write-Host "end"
We create the P:\ added it to the environment variable and then try and execute the ps1 file in that directory. When we run from inside Sapien we get an error that the file can't be found. When we run after compiling it it just hangs on the Get-wfvolume. We validated that the file is there and it works from the normal powershell.

Sapien is 4.2.95 64 bit on a 64 bit version on Windows7

Thank you for posting, Westfield.

Did you remember to include the following?
  • 1. Product, version and build (e.g. Product: PowerShell Studio 2014, Version & Build: 4.1.71. Version and build information can be found in the product's About box accessed by clicking the blue icon with the 'i' in the upper right hand corner of the ribbon.)
    2. Specify if you are running a 32 or 64 bit version
    3. Specify your operating system and if it is 32 or 64 bit.
    4. Attach a screenshot if your issue can be seen on the screen
    5. Attach a zip file if you have multiple files (crash reports, log entries, etc.) related to your issue.
If not, please take a moment to edit your original post or reply to this one.

Mapping drives requires elevation. Make sure you run your script elevated from within PowerShell Studio.
"hangs on the Get-wfvolume" That sounds like a network time out.
If you run an exe without elevation it will likely not create the mapped drive and not find the drive.

Note that "normal" PowerShell (I assume that is the console) already runs elevated.
