Windows: Powershell Scripts are Disabled

Smart Panda PowershellError: “File cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this system”.

Why I am using Powershell?  Oracle decided on the latest PeopleSoft Upgrade Management Images to change the methodology that they have been using since the beginning to a new method: “Powershell”.  So the very first system we try it on has a policy in place that won’t let us run powershell scripts that are untrusted.

With a couple of google searches we found that it is very easy to fix.  In the Powershell window execute the following command:

set-executionpolicy unrestricted

Now when you run the script you will find that you will be prompted to trust the script but once you trust the script you are good to go.


Happy Powershelling…..
