Using Exchange 2007 cmdlets in custom Powershell application

I have created an application in VB.net to simplify my jobs powershell tasks. Everything works fine when it comes to the script, and in essence all non-Exchange cmdlets work fine, i.e. Get-Process.

The issue is I cannot use the Exchange 2007 cmdlets. I am running this program on an Exchange server on which I would previously use to execute the cmdlets directly from Powershell, and they work fine when I input them in, but when I do it programmatically it says:

"Error in script: The term 'Get-Mailbox' is not recognized as a cmdlet, function, operable program, or script file."

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. If you need to see code please let me know.

I am wondering if there is a seperate System.Management.Automation.dll file that is used to reference Exchange 2007 cmdlets, anyone know if this would be the case?

There are a whole set of Exchange DLLs that you need.

You can see these on the Exchange Machine by doing this
Get-PSSnapin -Reg

I did that command on the exchange server and this is what I got back:

[PS] C:\Documents and Settings\administrator.EXCHHOSTING\Desktop>get-pssnapin -reg

Name        : Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.Admin
PSVersion   : 1.0
Description : Admin Tasks for the Exchange Server

Name        : Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.Support
PSVersion   : 1.0
Description : Support Tasks for the Exchange Server

Not really sure what DLL's those are referencing or which ones to get though.

Great job, that gave me the right direction, but I still had to figure out how to implement that into .NET. I needed to use the AddSnapIn feature to add the exchange parts.
