Use Ruby’s built-in File.exist?('C:\somefile') method instead of executing PowerShell’s Test-Path cmdlet, which takes longer to load.

Examples

incorrect

powershell_out('Test-Path "C:\\Program Files\\LAPS\\CSE\\AdmPwd.dll"').stdout.strip == 'True'

correct

::File.exist?('C:\Program Files\LAPS\CSE\AdmPwd.dll')
