Error: The term 'test.ps1' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet

Error

The term 'test.ps1' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

When running a script like ./Test.ps1 the script is expected to be in the current working directory (.).

Depending on the environment from which you're executing that statement the working directory may not be what you expect, though.

Here are some commands that allow you to determine the current working directory when run the same way as your script:

$PWD.Path
(Get-Location).Path
(Resolve-Path '.').Path

There are basically 3 ways to deal with the issue:

  • Specify the path to your PowerShell script relative to the current working directory.
  • Change the current working directory to the location of the PowerShell script:

    Push-Location 'C:\temp\folder'
    .\Test.ps1
    Pop-Location
  • Run the PowerShell script with its full path:

    & 'C:\temp\folder\Test.ps1'

    If the executable's filename, path, or pathname doesn't contain spaces, using the call (&) operator is optional. Otherwise, the call operator is required.
