I have multiple tasks that use Excel within PowerShell scripts that are run on Visual Cron. I have noticed since the 9.4.0 upgrade, all of these task hang because the Excel process is not ending when Visual Cron runs these jobs. To be clear, when I manually run these tasks in Powershell, they complete without fail and close the Execel process. The issue only resides when Visual Cron runs the same PowerShell scripts. Any idea as to why this is happening?

It's possible you're not using Local login + load profile on the credential you use? If you are, please send screenshots of all task settings and full information to support@visualcron.com

We are releasing a new version tomorrow that reverts the SQL changes so you shouldnt need to use local login + load profile again

I reinstalled visual cron and reloaded the jobs. Everything seemed to work well for the last month and then it reverted right back to the same thing as my original post. I am truly lost as to what direction I need to go.

I can attest that when I run the same powershell scripts on that machine without VC, the scripts run without fail and the way they need to run. As soon as I try it with Visual Cron, the process fails as a whole.
