Batch File not executing correctly.

Hello,

I have not been able to complete the execution of this batch file.  I have verified that it is indeed correct in syntax, as it runs locally just fine.  

TASKKILL /f /im iexplore.exe
CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
timeout /t 5
start iexplore.exe

In essence the code is meant to close Internet Explorer, and restart it upon the 5 second timeout period.  But, it seems like it only executes the first part of the code successfully.  Internet Explorer closes, but nothing else happens. (no errors in pulseway log).  Feel free to run the code as it isn't malicious.  Am I missing something to make work?

Thanks and I hope to get a response soon.  I would greatly appreciate the continued support.

Please note that scripts will run in an isolated session (session zero) which means that all GUI applications will run in a session that's not visible to the console. This has been done to enhance the security and privacy of the end user and to support running scripts while there is no logged in user. You could try using the Enter-PSSession PowerShell cmdlet to join a user session.

Hello,

I put in the Enter-PSSession, and saved it as a Powershell script.  

Enter-PSSession -ComputerName computer1
TASKKILL /f /im iexplore.exe
CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
timeout /t 5
start iexplore.exe

It receives the following response. 

ERROR: Input redirection is not supported, exiting the process immediately.

It still closes the program, however still does nothing else.

I found out 

ERROR: Input redirection is not supported, exiting the process immediately.

Was associated with time timeout command.  Upon removing that, the command ignores the following:


CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
start iexplore.exe

Try to use something like this (via PowerShell):

$j = Start-Job -ScriptBlock {
TASKKILL /f /im iexplore.exe
}
Wait-Job $j -Timeout 5 | out-null
if ($j.State -eq "Completed") {
CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
start iexplore.exe
}
