When I run the following script or similar on w2k12:
I'm getting an error:Get-PSSessionConfiguration : Access is denied. To run this cmdlet, start Windows PowerShell with the "Run as
At line:1 char:1
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-PSSessionConfiguration], InvalidOperationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.InvalidOperationException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetPSSessionConfiguration
When I open powershell console using "Run as administrator" everything works fine.
On w2k3 and w2k8 I had the same problem, it was solved performing: Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted; in both PowerShell versions x86 and x64. Then I could run any script under any account.
By now Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted; doesn't solve this problem any more on w2k12. I need to run scripts not under Administrator account. BTW my account belongs to BUILTIN\Administrators group but seems it doesn't helps
Have I missed something? Please help me if you know how to solve this problem.

Running elevated (right-click, Run as administrator) has nothing to do with execution policy.
Just because your account is a member of the local Administrators group does not mean programs you start run as administrator. To do that, you must manually elevate (right-click, Run as administrator).

Bill, thanks for reply.
I found the reason and my problem has been solved.
The thing is UAC (User Account Control) in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 doesn't works, when you pull down the slider UAC doesn't turn's off. When you need to Turn Off UAC you have to edit the registry:
Just run PowerShell as Administrator and paste the following to disable UAC:

That has nothing to do with your question or your issue.
What you have done is a very bad idea. You should not disable UAC.

I agree with jrv. IMO UAC should not be disabled.
