Calling Powershell scripts (.ps1) using Batch (.bat) files. As you can tell, I have SomeScript.ps1 in the same directory as .bat file I launch.

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -File "%~dp0SomeScript.ps1"

… and when I goolged, there were some other solutions as well for this… This way works for me so far.

The idea was to call any powershell script (.ps1),  located in the same folder as that .vbs script:


Dim sCurPath
sCurPath = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").GetAbsolutePathName(".")
'WScript.Echo sCurPath

Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
objShell.Run("powershell.exe –noexit &'" & sCurPath & "\SomeScript.ps1'")

I hope it helps someone.
