  • What you are asking and the code posted make little or no sense.

    If running scripts is disabled then you cannot run any scripts.  We cannot help with this.  Ask your admins for help.

  • I run this:

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0> Start-Process -"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE"

    It pops up a box that it wants a new app to open this. (Windows 10 of course) clicking on the Excel.exe works fine.  CMD prompt works. What am I missing in PS?

    Thank you any smart people!

  • You have a typo in your command.  There are extra characters in the command.

    Start-Process -"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE"
