Cannot run an exe file in RunOnce RRS feed

  • Question

  • I put a ps1 file in HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce on a Windows 7 PC with powershell 1.0

    The file include a few exe files. After logging in, the ps1 script run all the exe files OK except one that shows AutoIt Error:

    Line -1:

    Error: Subscript used with non-Array variable.

    I tried to put only one line in the script just running this exe file and got the same error.

    I tried to run it with no luck by using

    C:\app.exe, &C:\app.exe or Start-Process C:\app.exe

    However I can manually run this ps1 file or exe OK

  • Start-Process "C:\app.exe" -Verb runAs -Wait

    the ps1 file only contains above.

    OK, it may not be Powershell issue because I directly put c:\app.exe in RunOnce and got the same error.

  • Hi,

    Do you use a standard user?

    Standard user: RunOnce and RunOnceEx are not being executed
