The first thing to do to try to debug this situation is to locate powershell.exe on the target system and determine whether its directory is included in the PATH variable.

Target  and start is this:
my others 3 rdp's have indentical paths and works perfect
Target:%SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe  
start in: %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%

My script:
@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

:callPS label

powerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Command "$script = Get-Content '%~f0'; Invoke-Expression -Command ($script[(($script | select-string '::%1::').LineNumber)..(($script | select-string '::%1End::').LineNumber-2)] -join [environment]::NewLine)"


exit /b

----------------

::PSScript1::
write-host -foreground red Script1
Get-EventLog System | Where-Object {$_.EventID -eq "1074" -or $_.EventID -eq "6008" -or $_.EventID -eq "1076"} | ft Machinename, TimeWritten, UserName, EventID, Message -AutoSize -Wrap  | Out-File Reboot.txt
::PSScript1End::

----------------

::PSScript2::
write-host -foreground green Script2
::PSScript2End::

"Target" does not matter in this batch file. PowerShell.exe needs to be found via PATH (or special path set up in the reigstry). So you'll have to check that from inside the failing RDP session.

Make sure that your Path environment variable hasn't gotten borked.  Check the PATH registry entry under HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment is of type REG_EXPAND_SZ.  If it is just REG_SZ it will not be evaluated/expanded and would cause problems.

The target and start-in information that you provided look like what would appear in a shortcut but that is not the method you're invoking with. I agree with Qlemo that you need to see what your PATH variable looks like in the RDP session where the failure occurs.
