Fix: Editing Excel Documents With Powershell as Scheduled Job Fails

Due to some weird issues with excel or powershell (nobody knows for sure although Microsoft claims it's not supported here ) it seems impossible to edit, create or save Excel documents with powershell when running it as a scheduled job, when set that the user running the task does not have to be logged on. Searching the Internet there is a solution, which worked for me and a lot of other people. You'll have to create some folders depending on if you're running Windows in 32bits or 64bits:

You'll always have to create this folder:

C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Dektop

And if you're running 64bits you also have to create this folder:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\Desktop

Now it will work.
