When an exception happens, we say that an exception is thrown. To handle a thrown exception, youneed to catch it. If an exception is thrown and it isn't caught by something, the script stopsexecuting.


A trap is placed in a script or function to catch all exceptions that happen in that scope. Whenan exception happens, the code in the trap is executed and then the normal code continues. Ifmultiple exceptions happen, then the trap is called over and over.

First, let's discuss how to run PowerShell commands on remote computers with the help of PsExec. This ability of PsExec might not be useful for people working in domain environments since they can use PowerShell remoting. However, it is still worth discussing as not everyone works in a domain. There are many small organizations that are still operating in a workgroup environment.

This command executes a PowerShell script (Get-CompInfo.ps1) on a remote web server; the script itself is stored in a network share. The -ExecutionPolicy Bypass parameter allows the PowerShell script to execute even if the execution policy on that computer is set to Restricted mode. To run the script on multiple computers, you can either use a file (with entries in the format @computer.txt) or specify a list of comma-separated computer names, as discussed in the How to use PsExec guide.

The screenshot shows that the current execution policy on the remote webserver is Restricted, but the script was still executed anyway. Note that the command needs to be run carefully; order matters here with regard to the parameters. If you specify the -File parameter first and the -ExecutionPolicy parameter later on, the command won't work. See the following screenshot for reference:

This is a simple PowerShell script that I use to perform unattended deployment of a few applications in my environment. The interesting thing is in the line number 7. Look how the call operator or ampersand (&) character is used to call PsExec from a remote share. This technique is particularly useful if you don't want to install PsExec on all computers. If you have PsExec set up on all computers, you can specify the complete local path to the PsExec executable.

The installation package might not be accessible by the user you specified in the script, or you haven't specified the alternate user at all. If you don't specify the alternate user with PsExec, your currently logged-in user is impersonated, and it won't have access to network resources. In this situation, you need to use the -u switch with PsExec to specify an alternate user that has sufficient access to the network share containing the installation package.

The user invoking the PowerShell script is NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM (from an Azure DevOps automated pipeline), but need the PS1 file to run with domain credentials. I can get the username and password to the script, but seems that it is not allowed to elevate the creds.

PowerShell has a safety feature that protects users from unintentionally running scripts. This safety feature is called Execution Policies. Depending on the execution policy, PowerShell may prevent or allow scripts to run.

First, change the execution policy to AllSigned to ensure only signed scripts can run. Without doing this step, you cannot accurately test whether your signed script works. To do so, invoke the Set-ExecutionPolicy cmdlet by running the command below in PowerShell as admin.

A digital signature does not guarantee that nobody modified the script from its original version. Any PowerShell script with malicious code may be digitally signed, too. Always practice caution when running scripts from sources you do not fully trust.

Most of the time, examining the values of variables does not solve the problem because the code itself works fine. The problem often lies in what are called "the business rules" of the script. These are decisions the code makes that have nothing to do with the correct operation of, for example, a switch statement. At times, it may appear that the switch statement is not working correctly because the wrong value is displayed at the end of the code. But quite often the business rules themselves are causing the problem.

When the trace level has been set, it applies to everything that is typed in the Windows PowerShell console. If you run an interactive command, a cmdlet, or a script, it will be traced. When the CreateRegistryKey.ps1 script is run and there is no registry key present, the first debug line in the command displays the path to the script that is being executed.

Because Windows PowerShell parses from the top down, the next line that is executed is the line that creates the Add-RegistryValue function. This command is on line 7 of the script because the actual script that executed contains six lines that are commented out.

After the function is created, the next line of the script that executes is line 30. Line 30 of the CreateRegistryKey.ps1 script follows the comment that points to the entry point of the script (this is the last line), and it calls the Add-RegistryValue function by passing two values for the -key and -value parameters. This is shown here:

After the Set-ItemProperty cmdlet has executed, the script ends. The Windows PowerShell console parser now enters, with the same two lines of feedback that were shown when the tracing was first enabled:

I have a Windows 2008 server on which I am running several scheduled tasks. One of those tasks is a python script that uses pscp to log into a linux box, checks for new files and if there is anything new, copies them down to a local directory on the C: drive. I've put some logging into the script at key points as well and I'm using logging.basicConfig(level=DEBUG).

Now here's the weird part. If I run the script manually from the command line, it works fine. New files are downloaded and processed. However, if the Task Scheduler runs the script, no new files are downloaded. The script is running under the same user, but yet yields different results.

Brad's answer is right. Subprocess needs the shell context to work and the task manager can launch python without that. Another way to do it is to make a batch file that is launched by the task scheduler that calls python c:\path\to\ etc. The only difference to this is that if you run into a script that has a call to os.getcwd() you will always get the root where the script is but you get something else when you make the call to cmd from task scheduler.

What I did is I changed task settings: checked Run with highest privileges. And task started to work perfectly while running python [script path].But keep in mind, that title contains "Administrator: " at the begining... always...

P.S. Thanks guys for pointing out that subprocess is a problem. It made me think of task settings.I had similar problem when one script is running from Windows Task Scheduler, and another one doesn't.Running cmd with python [script path] didn't work for me on Windows 8.1 Embedded x64. Not sure why. Probably because of necessity to have spaces in path and issue with quotes.Hope my answer helps someone. ;)

Create a batch file add your python script in your batch file and then schedule that batch file .it will work .Example : suppose your python script is in folder c:\abhishek\script\merun.pyfirst you have to go to directory by cd command .so your batch file would be like :

I had this issue before. I was able to run the task manually in Windows Task Scheduler, but not automatically. I remembered that there was a change in the time made by another user, maybe this change made the task scheduler to error out. I am not sure. Therefore, I created another task with a different name, for the same script, and the script worked automatically. Try to create a test task running the same script. Hopefully that works!

For example, instead of having a script listen for an input trigger, such as the player pressing a specific key, the script listens for an action that is, in turn, bound to one, or more, real buttons, keys or other input devices.

Now, with the Virtual Input set up, I can write a script to listen for the Fire1 event by using the GetButtonDown method of the Input Class (which returns true on the frame that the button was first pressed).

Development of a new Star Trek film following Star Trek Beyond (2016) was revealed before the release of that film, with J. D. Payne and Patrick McKay writing. In December 2017, Quentin Tarantino pitched his own idea for a new Star Trek film to producer J. J. Abrams, and development began separately from the Beyond sequel. S. J. Clarkson was hired to direct the latter in April 2018, but negotiations with stars Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth ended that August with the actors leaving the project. Noah Hawley was hired in November 2019 to write and direct a new version of the franchise. Tarantino revealed in January 2020 that he had decided not to direct his Star Trek film. Hawley's version was placed on hold that August to allow Paramount to decide on the best direction for the franchise. Kalinda Vazquez was set to write the script for a new film in March 2021.

A separate script from Vasquez's was developed by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and Matt Shakman was hired to direct that film in July. The script was being re-written by Josh Friedman and Cameron Squires in November, and negotiations for the return of Pine and the rest of the main cast from the reboot series began in February 2022. Shakman left the film due to a schedule conflict that August, and Paramount began searching for a new director.

Tarantino confirmed in May 2019 that his Star Trek film was still in development, explaining that the script had been written and he would return to the project following the release of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that July.[25] A month later, he said he would be giving notes on the script once he had the chance to and confirmed that the film would be rated R.[26] In July, Tarantino said he had read Smith's script and liked it, but there were elements that he wanted to work on. He described the film as "Pulp Fiction in space".[27] He also said that he was a fan of the performances of Pine and Quinto in Abrams's films and wanted them to star in his film, but he wanted his story to be a direct prequel to the original Star Trek series rather than being set in an alternate timeline like Abrams's films are; when discussing the different timelines with Abrams, Tarantino had said "I don't understand this, I don't like it", and Abrams encouraged him to ignore them entirely.[28] 041b061a72
