Updated March 8, 2016

Overview

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.

Environment

  • All NPM versions 
  • Windows Server 2008 and 2012

Resolution

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