I am trying to schedule a powershell script to run via the task manager.  When I run the script alone - it executes fine.

Here is the contents of the RUN command via the Windows Scheduler:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe -PSConsoleFile "d:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin\exshell.psc1" -command E:\scripts\eventlog.ps1

When I try to run the task manually I get the following error:
Result: The task completed with an exit code of (fffc0000).

Instead of adding the console file... add this line to the top of your script

get-pssnapin -reg | add-pssnapin -ea 0

Also make sure the account you use for the task has the proper Exchange rights.
