Replacing Default Windows Wallpapers - Kace SDA Midlevel Task


I have a Postscript midlevel task for my Kace SDA  to replace the default windows wallpapers with wallpapers for my org.  I now want to update the associated zip folder with the new wallpapers but its telling me "Upload file extension for Powershell task must be .ps1 or .psm1." the pS1 file is in the zip folder. This has been in place the same way for years for my image, so it use to work. Does anyone have a work around for this?  Best

Hi @jg1155

Been through many trial and errors and I've noticed only that 'Type: Application' allows packaged files (.zip). On older versions of SDA, uploading .zip files for powershell task was permissible.
Currently we're on SDA 9.2.107. This works well if you have any dependency files.
My work around is that you may:

  • Create a batch file inside the zip file & for 'Full Command Line' to call for the batch file (E.g. INIT.bat)

The batch file could either call for your powershell script or DOS commands only. Hope this helps.

Type is set to "Powershell" so it wants a Powershell. Assuming they updated this at some point and now when you try to update it, it won't save. Can you create a new task and select a different Type that allows both zip and has command line option? (don't have K2000 to check myself)
