    How do I make the script wait for the execution of a program run
    through the start-process?

    Thanks

    I think you can sometimes try piping to out-null to cause PowerShell to wait
    for completion.

    Give that a try...

    Start-Process has a -wait parameter that does exactly that, at least in V2.

    ($proc = [system.Diagnostics.Process]::Start
    ("notepad.exe")).WaitForExit()
