Running Scripts Disabled in Windows PowerShell
Why am I getting the "running scripts is disabled on this system" error when I try to run a Windows PowerShell script?
If your system is not configured to run Windows PowerShell script, you will get an error when you type in the script file name in Windows PowerShell command line. For example:
PS C:\fyicenter> .\Hello.ps1 .\Hello.ps1 : File C:\fyicenter\Hello.ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled on this system. For more information, see about_Execution_Policies at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170. At line:1 char:1 + .\Hello.ps1 + ~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : SecurityError: (:) , PSSecurityException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnauthorizedAccess
What you need to do is to change the execution policy and rerun the script:
1. Start Windows PowerShell as an administrator.
2. Run the following cmdlet:
PS C:\fyicenter> set-executionpolicy remotesigned Execution Policy Change The execution policy helps protect you from scripts that you do not trust. Changing the execution policy might expose you to the security risks described in the about_Execution_Policies help topic at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170. Do you want to change the execution policy? [Y] Yes [N] No [S] Suspend [?] Help (default is "Y"): y
3. Run the script file again:
PS C:\fyicenter> .\Hello.ps1 Hello World! Address : www.microsoft.com ResponseTime : 30
