    I have an agent(KACE) that takes commands to update it via the command line, something like this:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE>AMPTools.exe host="newhostnamehere"


    C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE>runkbot.exe 4 0

    I'm trying to create a PS script to run these and for the life of me, I can't seem to get it.

    Any suggestions?

    How about something like this:

    $AMPptions = @('host="newhostnamehere"')
    & 'AMPTools.exe' $AMPptions
    $runkbotptions = @('4','0')
    & 'runkbot.exe' $runkbotptions

    Wouldn't this work as is in Powershell? You lose the double quotes, but I don't think they're needed anyway. I doubt your hostname has a space in it (I don't think that would even matter). Is there a 64-bit Kace client yet, lol?

    AMPTools.exe host="newhostnamehere"
    runkbot.exe 4 0

    If you want the double quotes, you can put single quotes around them, like for the find command:

     echo hi | find '"hi"'
