import-startlayout PS command not running from AutoIT - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain why the following command is not running from within AutoIT, yet, the next line is running fine from the command prompt?  In both cases Run As Administrator is being used.

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & 'powershell -executionpolicy bypass -command "import-startlayout -layoutpath '\\server\netlogon\LogOn\Win10Config\start1703.xml' -mountpath $env:systemdrive\"',"C:\windows\system32",@SW_HIDE)

powershell -executionpolicy bypass -command "import-startlayout -layoutpath '\\server\netlogon\LogOn\Win10Config\start1703.xml' -mountpath $env:systemdrive\"

I tried to run @comspec with '/k' and @SW_SHOW, but got nothing but a blank dos screen.

Thank you.

Replace the /c with a /h while testing and you should be able to see the error message in the cmd window.
I do believe you have atleast an issue with the single quotes in the command. maybe this is better: (untested)
