Have you tried saving it as a .ps1 file and running it from task scheduler within Windows?....

You need to load the exchange powershell set first

create yourself a batch file that will call your powershell script and will load the exchange shell also

This is how I do it

@echo off
PowerShell.exe -PSConsoleFile "D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\ExShell.psc1" -Command "./EASDevicestats.ps1"

This works then you can add the batch file to your task schedular

Of course you can name your powershell what ever you want
