Product: AM (x64)
Environment:  Win Server 2008 R2 SP1 w/ PowerShell 4.0
Powershell Actions, both for Embedded and External Scripts both are returning the following error for me in Beta3 x64: 
Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Interop.AM10ActionPluginTemplate.IAM10ActionPluginCallback'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{AE9CB6D5-8367-4428-B060-906462E3514F}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).
I've tried a few different powershell commands (embedded or saved as .PS1 files) and none are working for me currently, but they work fine when run from powershell. 
Example Embedded Task: 
As a quick proof of life test I made the following Run action that does sucessfully launch an "Administrator: Windows PowerShell" x64 instance (verified as x64 after as well) and it is able to run the same command: 

Please let me know if there's any additional details / logs, etc. you need, or if you believe the issue is being caused by something in my environment / configuration. Thanks!
