Does anyone know if it is possible to invoke an exe via ms flow?

@rbutgins21 it's not possible to run an exe file from a flow in Power Automate.

There are some options. From a Flow you can fire off a PowerShell script using Azure Automation with a remote worker. The script can then invoke the .exe file.

I haven't tested it, but it seems doable.
