The Trick to Getting Build Label Into PowerShell Script

is to use an environment variable.

The PowerShell Task is a subclassed Executable Task which loads a series of environment variables before the task is executed. You then just need to access those in your PowerShell script via the $Env variable.

In my case
$label = $Env:CCNetLabel

Scroll down to the Notes section of this page for a full list of the environment variables that are set.
