Powershell execution

I have a powershell script that generates daily and monthly reports for an application. I'm finding that I need to keep the powershell window opened in order to run the application. This creates a problem as I have to reboot the server often.

Is there a way I can run the script silently?

You can set up a Scheduled task using the followning command line:
powershell.exe -command "Myscript.ps1"

I also find that enabling use high priviledges in the task. for some admin rights.

There is also a -windowstyle parameter that can be set to "Hidden".



PowerShell.exe -windowstyle hidden { your script.. }

Guess the -WindowsStyle in combination with a scheduled task is your best choice. That way, your PowerShell task will only run whenever you need it.
