How to run a poweshell command from a batch file

Attila Mosonyi
Last Modified: 2020-03-10
I would like to run a powershell command:
Get-Process "auto ftp manager" | Where StartTime -lt (Get-Date).AddMinutes(-30) | Stop-Process -Force
every 12 hours on a server automatically.
I was thinking to use a batch file and windows scheduler to run it.
How do I make the powershell command run from a batch file?
Is there a better solution to achieving this task, i.e. running the ps command automatically every 12 hours?
