Remote Session Launcher not starting

Hi there,


We have started testing PasswordState within our company but we are sadly enough running into an issue with the Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher.

The issue we are running into is as follows:

When trying to start a Client Based Launcher from the Hosts tab it does not seem to open either SSH or RDP Connections. I do get the notification of I would like to open the link with the PSLauncher but nothing happens afterwords. I've tried enabling debug in PSLauncher.PS1 script and check the logging but no logging shows up. When running the script from PowerShell ISE I receive a few errors of missing statements:


PS C:\Program Files (x86)\Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher> C:\Program Files (x86)\Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher\PSLauncher.ps1
At C:\Program Files (x86)\Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher\PSLauncher.ps1:94 char:61
+     if($UserName -like '*.\*' -or $AccountType -eq 'Windows')
+                                                             ~
Missing statement block after if ( condition ).
At C:\Program Files (x86)\Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher\PSLauncher.ps1:110 char:1
+ }
+ ~
Unexpected token '}' in expression or statement.
At C:\Program Files (x86)\Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher\PSLauncher.ps1:277 char:1
+ {
+ ~
Missing closing '}' in statement block or type definition.
    + CategoryInfo          : ParserError: (:) [], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : MissingStatementBlock


It appears something might be broken in the script. I've updated PasswordState to the latest version and also tried Chrome, Edge Chromium, FireFox, Internet Explorer and another system. 


Could you please advice what might cause this issue and what we could do to fix it?


Kind regards,

Hi Jay,


Could you please try uninstalling the launcher for us, and ensure the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Passwordstate Remote Session Launcher is manually deleted.


The try re-installing the launcher again and let us know if you still have any issues? Also, do you have any AV software on your desktop which might be inteferring with this?
