Can't open elevated prompt and pass working directory This topic contains 2 replies, has 2 voices, and was last updated by Mica 2 years ago.

Anyone know how to get this working? January 12, 2016 at 5:06 pm #33799 Dave WyattModerator That's probably a security feature of some sort. I've noticed that my elevated prompts always show up in the \windows\system32 directory. Instead of -WorkingDirectory C:\, try -ArgumentList '-NoExit -Command Set-Location C:\' January 12, 2016 at 5:47 pm #33801 MicaParticipant That does it. Thanks!
