Run PowerShell code inside C# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    I have a PowerShell Script that I run to insert some data into SQL Server.  However, I want to be able to execute it inside a C# application.  I know for sure, I have to add the following references using system.managemet.automation and system.management.automation.runspaces.  My PowerShell Script is the following:

    Import-Module SQLPS -DisableNameChecking
    $TruncateQuery = "Truncate Table TestTable"
    #Truncate Query
    Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query $TruncateQuery -ServerInstance "local" -Database "TestDatabase"
    $InsertStatement = "Insert INTO TestTable (ID, Message) Values (1, 'Test Message')"
    Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query $InsertStatement -ServerInstance "local" -Database "TestDatabase"

  • Hi Diango,

    Don't just "bump" to bump your post.

    Please post the C# code what you have done so far so that we can identify where you are going wrong.

  • So I've been trying to execute the simple PS code below in C#. Everything looks good, but it just won't insert into my table.

    PowerShell ps = PowerShell.Create();

    var Query = "Insert INTO SimpleTest Values (2, 'This is a Test!')";

    ps.AddScript("Import-Module SQLPS -DisableNameChecking"); ps.AddScript("get-module SQLPS"); ps.AddScript("Invoke-Sqlcmd -ServerInstance localhost -Database TestDB -Query " + Query); ps.Invoke();
