Do you know if I can use PS v7 instead of Microsoft PowerShell v5.1 in the script activity of SCORCH 2019?

    Hi, the steps are:

    • Install PowerShell Core on the Runbook Server(s)
    • Enable Remoting
    • Invoke PowerShell with pwsh {#yourscript } in
       $Result = pwsh {
           $version=(get-host).Version
           return $version
       }2>&1
    

    Activity

    Result

    Regards, Stefan

    Hi @carlos , there is a workaround to use PowerShell 7 with SCORCH: https://www.miru.ch/how-to-execute-64-bit-powershell-scripts-in-system-center-orchestrator/ Instead of the 64bit PowerShell executable you have to provide the exe of PowerShell v7 in the script followed by the scriptblock in curly brackets.
