Running a batch file directly on the server executes a PowerShell script as expected, but when the batch file is executed through the Advanced Alerts, it states that it executed and resulting in a false positive.


  • All NPM versions 
  • Windows Server 2008 and 2012


Run the PowerShell script with elevated privilege and set execution policy to bypass.
