deploy.ps1 -> Script exited with code -1073741502

This used to work, but now the agent throws an exception:
"Script exited with code -1073741502"

As soon as a deploy.ps1 file is found, the error is thrown and deployment fails.
It looks like an error when the agent executes the powershell on the target machine.

    To investigate, I would first replace it with some super-simple "hello world" script and ensure it is executed OK. Then added some tracing into the existing script to determine which step actually fails, for example print which step is going to be executed and environment variable values.

    Hi Ilya,

    I have replaced the file with a simple script with a single write-host
    error still occurres.

    Even though I have set the agent logging to verbose I cannot identify the
    I think this could be related to permissions... can I enable more verbose

    Just to clarify -- you change logging verbosity level at %ProgramFiles%\AppVeyor\DeploymentAgent\Appveyor.DeploymentAgent.Service.exe.config? And looking to events at `Applications and Services Logs > AppVeyor'?

    Also what account AppVeyor Deployment agent service log on with (you can check in with a "Services" mmc snap-in)?

    Hi Ilya,

    Yes - thats where im looking for logs. The only events logged are:

        <Data>Deployment job finished: pybxy01hqpguj35b</Data>
        <Data>Deployment job pybxy01hqpguj35b error: Script exited with code
        <Data>Looking for deploy.ps1 at C:\Struct\PIMSource\update

    The account is running as "Local System".
    However - im experiencing issues when trying to uninstall the agent.

    Apart from that, when trying to update the agent the following issue
