If the prompt is a security prompt on the other side of UAC, you need to be running PowerShell elevated ("As Administrator") in order to send keys or clicks to that prompt.

Thanks. I figured that this also depends on the version of Windows we are using. I am trying on Windows 2012 which has different GUI than Windows 2008. So the above commands are working on Windows 2008 however on 2K12 they are not able to recognize the button on prompt.

Also UAC is turned off and I am running PowerShell as Administrator. Summary of windows controls are like this.

You should only install driver software from publishers you trust. How can I decide which device software is safe to install?
Let me know if you have some suggestion on this.
