PowerShell script won't run as part of a logon script.

I have a PowerShell script which checks to ensure certain backups have taken place. The script checks the date of certain flag / semaphore files and shows a message if the files are too old (which one is in this test)

This works fine when manually run from the following batch file
Powershell.exe -executionpolicy Bypass -File  "Check-If-Backup-Failed.ps1"

Open in new window

but not when the same command line is added to the 'logon.bat' logon script.

What am I doing wrong (I presume it is permissions somehow) ?

NOTE: I don't get an error when I login - it just does nothing.

Place the PowerShell script file in shared location and use the UNC path in

Powershell.exe -executionpolicy Bypass -File  "\\servername\sharer\Check-If-Backup-Failed.ps1"
