Questionwhy cant I run powershell script from current directory Pin

the following is part for a c# code that I am working on:

C#
// Specify the PowerShell script filename
    powerShellScriptFilename = @"C:\Users\sherz\OneDrive\Downloads\enableTouchScreen.ps1";

// Create process start info
ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo
{
    FileName = "powershell.exe",
    Arguments = $"-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command \"{powerShellScriptFilename}\"",
    RedirectStandardInput = false,
    RedirectStandardOutput = false,
    RedirectStandardError = false,
    CreateNoWindow = true,
    UseShellExecute = true, //need to be set to true for 'Verb' to function
    Verb = "runas" //run application as Administrator
    //WorkingDirectory = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory()
};

// Create the process
Process process = new Process { StartInfo = psi };

// Start the process
process.Start();


With this above the script run as expected.

The issue is if I move the script to the 'currentDirectory' (ie the Project debug folder) the script is not executed.

I already tried updating 'powerShellScriptFilename' with the corresponding absolute path, script still worth execute.

As the code works if I chose a different location, it seems to me that there may be some restriction or filepath length issue.

My aim is to try and avoid hard coding the filepath to the script and I would like my program to pick its current directory to find the script and run it.

How can I test/do that if it is not possible to do that from the debug folder?

still quite new to C# but keen to learn! Smile | :)
