Greetings everyone
I am trying to solve problem with powercfg -energy command - when i run script manually from Kace's agent folder everything works fine - but when i am trying push it from kace i recevied a error :

powercfg -energy 
Couldn't loaded energy.dll library

I have figured that the main problem is that script run normally in 32-bit mode but Kace's agent trying run it in 64 bit mode ( in prompt i see syswow64 folder ).

Answer Chosen by the Author

try calling it this way

c:\windows\system32\powercfg -energy

The client is 32 bit so it goes to the syswow folder first.  use can use the sysnative switch also to get 64 bit calls

sysnative is explained in the last paragraph
