Trying to create a Scheduled Task on my MS2008R2 server for Steve Goodmans Exchange Environment Reporting powershell,

Generate Exchange Environment Reports using Powershell by Steve Goodman
http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/Generate-Exchange-2388e7c9

I can run the script manually, which then sends the email.
.\Get-ExchangeEnvironmentReport -HTMLReport c:\Scripts\report.html -SendMail:$true -MailFrom:sender@abc.com -MailTo:recip@abc.com -MailServer:mail.abc.com

So when creating the Scheduled Task, creating the Action, what would I need to enter in these fields?

Action:
Start a program

Program/Script:
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe or powershell.exe?

Add Arguments (optional):   (no idea here?)
? .\Get-ExchangeEnvironmentReport -HTMLReport c:\Scripts\report.html -SendMail:$true -MailFrom:sender@abc.com -MailTo:recip@abc.com -MailServer:mail.abc.com ?

Start in (optional):
?

OR

Does a bat file need to be created containing the command:
.\Get-ExchangeEnvironmentReport -HTMLReport c:\Scripts\report.html -SendMail:$true -MailFrom:sender@abc.com -MailTo:recip@abc.com -MailServer:mail.abc.com

then run that as a bat file instead of the above steps?

Thanks in advance guys!

on the schedule task
use powershell.exe
and the argument will be

-path c:\script\Get-ExchangeEnvironmentReport.ps1 -HTMLReport c:\Scripts\report.html -SendMail:$true -MailFrom:sender@abc.com -MailTo:recip@abc.com -MailServer:mail.abc.com
