Getting "RuntimeException" errors when using Powershell



When using the sample Powershell scripts in PRTG I get a RuntimeException error. What have I done wrong?

Thanks in advance. James

Dear James,

this could be an issue with the Powershell Execution Policy. In some tests it was necessary to set this policy to 'Unrestricted' otherwise PRTG could not execute the scripts.

Information about signing Powershell scripts and the Execution Policy for scripts can be found in the following external resources:

(Please bear in mind that there might be two Powershell.exe (32bit and 64bit) for 64bit Windows OS'.)

Best Regards.
