SCCM error 0x87d01106

Cause for Error 0x87d01106 

The application was trying to execute a PowerShell script. However, PowerShell.exe could not be located on client computers. The full path for Powershell.exe file was not provided in command line.

powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File MyScript.ps1

PowerShell.exe path must be defined in PATH environment variable. By default, Powershell.exe path is defined in PATH environment variable however it may overwritten by other applications due to misconfiguration. Hence, the deployment will fail on the computers where Powershell.exe path does not exists in PATH environment variable.

SCCM Program

Solution for Error 0x87d01106 

It’s better to provide the complete path for PowerShell executable in program command line. This will eliminate the dependency over PATH environment variable as PowerShell.exe can be located by the path provided with command line.

The complete path to execute PowerShell script should be like this:

%SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File MyScript.ps1
