Custom Sensors - Powershell Scripts directory



Hello, why does PRTG not show Powershell-scripts in the powershell-directory in the custom sensors tree? They must be copied to the exe-directory.

Please use the \EXE sub folder for your Powershell scripts.

The \Powershell sub folder is not used any more. All EXE/BAT/CMD/Script files have to be copied to the \EXE folder (except for WMI WQL scripts files).
