    Unfortunately when executing the code as you provided from within TestComplete it does not work because you are executing the powershell script and requesting the error level in two different interpreters.  Not only that, but they are executing in parallel.


    What I ended up doing instead is this:


      strCMD = "powershell -file c:\test\Script.ps1"
      Set oShell=Sys.OleObject("WScript.Shell")
      rc=oShell.Run(strCMD, 0, True)
      Log.Message( "returncode=" & rc)


    rc is the Return Code from the script, and as you can see, we are waiting for the result from the oShell.Run command before continuing.
