PSScheduledJob only works with positional parameters in ArgumentList

When using scheduled jobs in PowerShell v3 you can pass parameters to the scheduled job via the “ArgumentList” parameter. However, you can only pass values via its position (instead via its name) as the parameter expects an array of objects:

-ArgumentList<Object[]>

So it is not possible to run any of your scripts as “scheduled jobs” when they expect only names parameters. You have to revert to “traditional” task scheduler invocation via “powershell.exe -File <DRIVE:\PATH\SCRIPT.PS1>”
