    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?
