A task fails with the error: Internal error: Error on command execution - "powershell.exe ..." Error: The system cannot find the file specified.


pleskd.exe cannot find powershell.exe because path to powershell.exe location ("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\") is not included into PATH variable of process (pleskd.exe) environment.


  1. Check whether the PATH variable contains "C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\".
  2. Restart PA Agent:
net stop pem
net start pem
