Getting an error when running Powershell inline script

can't seem to run powershell inline script in bamboo.  I keep getting this error after setting up a new bamboo agent:

Hi @Hector Magnanao please check the environment variable PATH have the windows  powershell exe 



For test purpose you can add a new task with this inline cmd script

powershell -Command "$PSVersionTable.PSVersion"

This code show the path variables for you agent.

This is already fixed.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi Omar,

This error seems to come back again with a new bamboo agent.  I tried that command above but it gives me this error:

Unable to find executable at cmd.exe. Will try to run it anyway.
'powershell' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

For those who are wondering, I also had this issue on a Windows 2016 box, with bamboo agent running as a non-interactive service, using the java wrapper.exe. On that machine, the system %PATH% was not being loaded for a domain user account which was being used to run the service. I got things working by modifying the wrapper.conf (referenced on the command line for the win service) to include the following lines:


These statements should be on two lines. I used a temporary variable due to a bug mentioned in

This may be a hack. I'm not sure what the proper way of injecting the system PATH into a service context is, if any.
