Look for the 'edit' link just under your answer. That allows you to update it.

comment Group Policy to set desktop background to say machine name
What do you mean "profile specific"? If you want it to run for everyone that logs into a machine, add it to either C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. This can be done easily with Group Policy Preferences.

comment Move-ADObject : The operation could not be performed because the object's parent is either uninstantiated or deleted
Is the = before the quoted OU in -TargetPath a typo in just the question? Or did you put that on the command line as well?

comment Script does not run under Domain Administrator
How does echo MyDate >test.txt work? Wouldn't you need the enclosing %s? With my current regional settings I can just do ECHO %date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~12,2% without shelling out to cscript.

comment Batch script is not getting executed when called by Start-Process Cmdlet
@Matze I curious how that resolves the issue if you're unable to run the batch file from a cmd prompt. Are you unable to run it in cmd because you're not in the same directory as the .cmd file? You should post your resolution as an answer below so you can mark it as accepted. Answering your own questions is strongly encouraged.

comment Batch script is not getting executed when called by Start-Process Cmdlet
"Calling the batch script from a cmd.exe prompt does also not start it" -- There's your problem. What's the .cmd file's real name? What are its contents? What are the relevant security settings applied?

I politely disagree @NathanC. The question here is "How do I fix activation?", not "Which Windows license should I buy?"
