Running quotes and singles quotes...Batch

Hi Folks,

I'm creating a batch script here to allow RDP on Windows
powershell "Set-ItemProperty ‘HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\‘ -Name “fDenyTSConnections” -Value 0"

Open in new window

If I run this script will get me an error :
set-itemproperty: a positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument

But if I was to copy paste the line above to the DOS console they it would work like a charmed.

Have anybody experienced similar or same issue?

Look closely at the code block you posted, probably using Copy and Paste.
The quotes around the registry path and fDenyTSConnections aren't the required ASCII 34 (double quote ") or ASCII 39 (single quote '), but the typographical curly/"purdy" ones. When you paste them into a console, they'll be converted to the respective ASCII characters, but not when saved as a script like that.
Try this:
powershell.exe -Command "Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server' -Name 'fDenyTSConnections' -Value 0"

Open in new window
