Background :
I am trying to execute the below powershell command on Windows 10 using Uipath.
Get-Content C:\BlankProcess\v1.txt

Challenge :
The command is working fine with Powershell Application (provided by Windows) but in UIpath (using Uipath invoke powershell activity)the command throws the below error
"An ExceptionDetail, likely created by IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults=true, whose value is:
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path ‘C:\Users\s112491\Desktop\RK\Powershell Process\BlankProcess3’ is denied.

Kindly find the attached xaml and exception trace and screensho in attachment.

Hi @rahulkhatwani

What is the version of your activity packages?

Attached the screen shot for all detailed version of activities that are used.Versions%20of%20activities|330x401

Any chance you have some Windows policies or software that could block the application from working properly?

You could also try to update the UiPath.System activity package to a newer version and give it a try.

I have updated all the relevant packages involved to the latest version.
Refer to the image.

Can you elaborate on Windows policies I have admin rights over my machine too.

Hi @rahulkhatwani,
First of all please mark “Is Script” in attributes pane for Invoke Powershell activity. Secondly as you are using String type of Argument add to your powershell command “| Out-String” so it would look like this:

Get-Content C:\BlankProcess\v1.txt | Out-String
