    Do you get the same error when you run the commands below ?

    $action= $TRunner -E $env:APIEnvironment -f $ResultsFolder -R $ReportType -FHTML -I $ProjectFile -A -r -M
    cmd.exe /C $action

    Hello @Abhimanyu Sharma

    This would be a typical situation if you are running the cmd from Powershell ISE. An error is generated when an EXE writes to stderr, but only within the ISE or when remoting or using background jobs.

    An EXE that writes to stderr does not generate errors from the regular PowerShell command prompt.

    Please try from a regular Powershell session.

    Hope this helps with your query,
