## Execution of Scripts is Disabled on this System.

Last Updated On Saturday 6th Nov 2021

## Cannot be Loaded because running Scripts is disabled on this System

• This error comes when the PowerShell execution policy doesn’t allow us to run scripts.
• I also encountered the same error when trying to execute the PowerShell script.

## Solution

### Running Scripts is disabled on this system

• The Set-ExecutionPolicy cmdlet enables you to determine which Windows PowerShell scripts (if any) will be allowed to run on your computer.
• Windows PowerShell has four different execution policies.

Below is the list of four different execution policies in PowerShell.

• Restricted – No Script either local, remote or downloaded can be executed on the system.
• AllSigned – All script that are ran require to be digitally signed.
• RemoteSigned – All remote scripts (UNC) or downloaded need to be signed.
• Unrestricted – No signature for any type of script is required.

### Allow PowerShell Scripts

Run the following command to get current execution policy in set in PowerShell.

	PS C:\> get-executionpolicy



You can bypass this policy by adding -ExecutionPolicy ByPass when running PowerShell script.

	c:\> powershell -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File script.ps1
