My recommendation is to change the folder in the cmd batch file part, to the folder where the batch file is located:
@echo off
pushd %~dp0

REM ... some CMD commands here ...
echo Batch cmd 1
call :callPS PSScript1
REM ... some CMD commands here ...
echo Batch cmd 2
call :callPS PSScript2
REM ... some CMD commands here ...
pause
popd
exit /b

Open in new window

Then you can just use the file name, without path, in Out-File.

I would have to check myself. Doesn't it save in the script's folder?
