Starting Powershell from AutoIt errors

3 posts in this topic

Im using a couple of uninstall scripts which are ps1 from an Autoit file

Global $WinVer = StringLeft(FileGetVersion(@SystemDir & "\WinVer.exe"), 3)
 
 _RemoveBloat()
  
Func _RemoveBloat()
    $File = @ScriptDir & "\errorlog.txt"

    If $WinVer > 6.2 And $WinVer < 10.0 Then ; Windows 8/8.1 version
        ShellExecute ( "powershell.exe" , "Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online | Out-File" & $File & " -Append" )
        ShellExecute ( "powershell.exe" , "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage | Out-File" & $File & "-Append" )
    ElseIf $WinVer >= 10.00 Then ; Windows 10 version
        ShellExecute ( "powershell.exe" , '-executionpolicy bypass -file ' & @ScriptDir & "\apps_by_name.ps1" )
    EndIf
EndFunc ;>> _RemoveBloat()

In the apps by name file they are written like this

$ErrorActionPreference = "SilentlyContinue"

$ScriptDir = Split-Path $script:MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path
$File = $ScriptDir & "\errorlog.txt"

remove-appxpackage $(Get-AppxPackage | where {$_.name -like "*06DAC6F6.StumbleUpon*"}).PackageFullName | Out-File $File -Append

I have added the  | Out-File $File -Append and   | Out-File" & $File & " -Append as im trying to get them to write to a text file called errorlog.txt

It runs the powershell windows but they have red writing and dissapeer before i can read it

Can anyone suggest where ive gone wrong?

Shouldn't there be spaces before/after $File?

"... Out-File " & $File & " -Append")
