PowerShell Gotcha

Text file with $false in it, read this into a variable and you have $false

Use it in an If Statement and what do you get (True)

You need to invoke-expression because it has a $ infront of it, so call it with powershell to actually run the powershell code so you can get the results.

[Boolean]$Var = $False
$Var = [System.Convert]::ToBoolean("$True")
