    Batch File - PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File


    I know this is probably simple to correct but I am having a problem.

    I have a Folder with .PS1 files that I want to iterate through and run one after the other. The thing is I think I have complicated the permissions side of things. Here is the Script . . .

    Code:
    
    @echo off
    color 17 & if NOT "%1"=="MAX" start /MAX cmd /c %0 MAX & Exit/b
    setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
    set "params=%*"
    cd /d "%~dp0" && ( if exist "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs" del "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs") && fsutil dirty query %systemdrive% 1>nul 2>nul || ( echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) : UAC.ShellExecute "cmd.exe", "/k cd ""%~sdp0"" && %~s0 %params%", "", "runas", 1 >> "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs" && "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs" && Exit /b)
    %windir%\system32\reg.exe query "HKU\S-1-5-19" 1>nul 2>nul || ( echo. & echo  ERROR: This Batch file MUST be run in an ELEVATED cmd prompt [ Administrator ] & echo. & echo         Right-click the Batch file and click ^<Run as Administrator^>. & echo. & echo ^>Press ANY key to EXIT . . . & pause >nul & Exit )
    
    set "Folder=C:\System-Admin_Implementation"
    set Count=0
    
    echo.
    if exist "%Temp%\*.vbs" (del "%Temp%\*.vbs")
    echo set X=CreateObject("WScript.Shell") >> "%Temp%\*.vbs"
    for %%j in ("%Folder%\*.ps1") do set /a Count += 1
    echo.
    echo  Processing . . . & echo.
    echo  ==============================================================================& echo.
          for %%i in ("%Folder%\*.ps1") do (echo Processing File: %%i & echo X.Run ^"PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File ^" ^& chr^(34^) ^& %%i ^& chr^(34^), 0, True >> "%Temp%\*.vbs") & echo.
    echo  ==============================================================================& echo.
    echo  Processing COMPLETE.
    echo  Processed %Count% PS1 files [ Check the Results for ERRORS ]. & echo. & del "%Temp%\*.vbs" & echo.
    echo ^>Press ANY Key to Exit and Restart Explorer . . . & pause > nul
    TaskKill /f /im explorer.exe & start explorer.exe

    I am NOT really up with VBS.

    The results show . . .

    Code:
    
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    
     Processing . . .
    
     ==============================================================================
    
    Processing File: C:\System-Admin_Implementation\Change_This.ps1
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    
     ==============================================================================
    
     Processing COMPLETE.
     Processed 1 PS1 files [ Check the Results for ERRORS ].
    
    Could Not Find C:\Users\SYSTEM~1\AppData\Local\Temp\*.vbs
    
    >Press ANY Key to Exit and Restart Explorer . . .

    I even tried these . . .

    Code:
    
    
    PowerShell -Command "& {Set-ExecutionPolicy bypass}" -NoExit
    for %%f in ("%Folder%\*.ps1") do PowerShell -Command "& {%%f}" -NoExit
    Code:
    
    set "Folder=C:\System-Admin_Implementation"
    PowerShell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "& {Start-Process PowerShell -ArgumentList '-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File ""%Folder%\*.ps1""' -Verb RunAs}";

    Thanks in advance.

    Code:
     C:\Users\SYSTEM~1\AppData\Local\Temp\*.vbs
    cannot be an Object in VBS - why not do everything in PS?

    I'm not clued up on CMD (isn't that what Moses used on his tablets when he came down from the mountain?)

    I want to do this via Batch Script!

    @Paul Black, I was the one who advised you to use VBScript last year in this post: Adapting .REG Files.

    Now I know that VBScript is totally unnecessary. You can simply use the following command in a batch script:

    Call PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -file "%%i"

    Thanks Matthew.

    Did you get it to run, because my screen just flashes?

    One line of command will do the job.
    Code:
    For %%i in ("C:\System-Admin_Implementation\*.ps1") Do (Call PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -file "%%i")

    No VBScript is needed.

    Still dunno how the *.vbs fits in - looks they are being deleted then attempted to access the non-existent stuff .

    If using WShell.Run merely to run execute silently try the PS "&" command

    eg:

    Code:
     & (Join-Path $env:SystemRoot -ChildPath "\Path\File.vbs") | Out-Null

    *.vbs is wrong.
    Last year, in the following post, I used ✱.vbs, which worked.

    Adapting .REG Files.

    Note that .vbs and *.vbs are two different things.

    I did get it work and was just about to delete my above post when you posted. I had left a line of code in that needed to be taken out from when I was testing.

    OIC.. like a Capital Asterix - never seen it before - what's the difference?
