Powershell upgrade

Hi all,

How does Bamboo finds powershell to run the scripts?

I have Bamboo running on Windows 2008 R2, which comes with powershell version 2. I can run powershell scripts with the script task without any problem.

I have to update raygun.io so I need powershell version 3, which I installed with https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34595

The install seems successful, the machine runs now with powershell version 3, however Bamboo is just unable to run any powershell script from the script task. The exception that I see in the logs is

Caused by: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "powershell" (in directory "D:\Atlassian\bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir\FSB-TR-JOB1"): CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

powershell is in the system path, so I'd think it shouldn't be hard to actually run those powershell scripts.

Does anyone know the configuration such that Bamboo can execute powershell scripts again?

So the answer is that the windows update updates the system path after the bamboo server starts after reboot, But once the bamboo service is restarted, bamboo picks up the new path and finds the new powershell
