PowerShell: Cannot find path Error

The attached script suddenly not working.  I am getting an error indicating that 'Cannot find path'.  The script was working great prior to this error.  I can open the .csv file using Notepad. I check the permissions on the folder and the file.  Full access has been granted.

Can someone advise as to what may be the issue and what troubleshooting I should consider?

review the following error:
PS C:\WinUpVer> C:\Fix\GetWmiObj08AutoWinUpV4.ps1
Get-Content : Cannot find path 'C:\WinUpVer\Updates.csv' because it does not exist.
At C:\Fix\GetWmiObj08AutoWinUpV4.ps1:1 char:13
+ $servers = (Get-Content .\Updates.csv)
+             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (C:\WinUpVer\Updates.csv:String) [Get-Conte
   nt], ItemNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetContentCommand

Thanks,

If you can access the CSV with the full path as reported in the error message, 'C:\WinUpVer\Updates.csv', then it is indeed very strange.

Qlemo,

Issue resolved. I determined it was a credentials issue.  What is odd is that I used the same credentials multiple times to execute this script and it ran successfully. Suddenly it failed to execute with the original credentials.

Question: How did you move the attached script into a code block? Not sure how I would accomplish that task.

Thank you for your response.
