comment Why is $pshome in a “v1.0” directory?
@Shane Madden - I didn't say it was necessarily a bad thing. :) It's why companies will build million and billion dollar businesses on MSFT technologies... Bad comes with the good.

They care less about being intuitive, and more about not pissing off enterprise users that have hard-coded/made assumptions.

comment When ran as a scheduled task, cannot save an Excel workbook when using Excel.Application COM object in PowerShell
:( Seems you're probably right. However, also seems that this method used to work on an older version of Windows/Excel, based on this 2006 scripting guys post: blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2006/05/18/… ... Will keep Question open for a while to see if anyone has a workaround. If this can't be done, will involve a rewrite of a bunch of code; will end up w/much cleaner solution, but a lot of work. Thanks for your help.

I'll give this article a read. At first glance it shouldn't apply because it's talking about webapp or Win service code, or scheduled tasks running as SYSTEM etc. I'm trying to run as (my) domain account... Also, my hope is to run it as a service account without logon needed, but my initial tests it's running as my account with that option, while I'm logged in. So even if I'm interactive on the box, with that option it's failing.
