Any reason why a Lock Screen would not initiate from a Powershell script with a Lansweeper Deploy?
Anyone have a trick that will work?

I run a command (very similar to other powershell scripts that I run)
powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass -file "{PackageShare}\Scripts\Lock-Desktop.ps1"

Then the PS1 has a simple script:
rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

It works locally of course, but not remotely through Lansweeper Deploy.

UPDATE: Found problem, run as Logged In User!

Fixed it! So quick, for anyone else, this works, just make sure to run it as "Currently Logged On" and not a System Account! D'oh!

Could just be run as a normal command, doesn't need to be called from powershell unless you are doing other fancy stuff.
