    These are the ps lines I use:


    $logpath = "C:\TestExecuteLogs\RunlogRegressie.mht"

    $testexecute = "C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\TestExecute 11\Bin\TestExecute.exe"
    $p = Start-Process -filepath $testexecute -ArgumentList "`"C:\Regressie XL\RegressieTest\Regressie.pjs`"", /run, /exit, /SilentMode, /ExportLog:$logpath -verb runas -wait


    the -verb runas makes it run as administrator

    the -wait keeps the powershell session alive while testexecute is running


    You can lose these if you don't need them.

        Your project path does not include any drive or directory information. Therefore, it assumes that the project MDS file is going to be in whatever path the context of the powershell command is being run in.  If your MDS does not exist in that path, it won't open.


        Change your project path value to include the full path to the file and this should work.
