Run Batch File With PowerShell


New to Powershell but I am trying to kick off a batch file with a Powershell script, I have included the script below with the servers taken out. It is not kicking off the the .bat file, can you tell me why?

start-process “\server\folder\folder_batch.bat”

Everything looks good to me.



You should read the complete help for the cmdlet Start-Process including the examples.

Get-Help Start-Process -Full
Start-Process -FilePath $Env:ComSpec -ArgumentList '/c \\server\folder\folder\_batch.bat'

A batch file is not an executable

Why do you need batch if you are launching Powershell?
