Invoking powershell command

HI Experts

Please see code snipped , I am trying to call a powershell command from C# and got the following error:


"Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it."

I have followed http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2365137&SiteID=17 , but still have the same error.

Thanks
// create Powershell runspace
            Runspace runspace = RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace();
            // open it
            runspace.Open();         
            Command cmd = new Command("Get-Credential");
            cmd.Parameters.Add("Credential", "user");
            // create a pipeline and feed it the command
            Pipeline pipeline = runspace.CreatePipeline();
            pipeline.Commands.Add(cmd);
            // execute the commnand
            Collection<PSObject> results = pipeline.Invoke();
            // close the runspace
            runspace.Close();

Open in new window

I am not sure what your going for, but Get-Credential is going to want to prompt you for a password and that cannot be passed via parameter.

Why do you want to use Get-Credential?

HI

thanks for your respond.

I am trying to implement my own Login cndlet which has the following format

Login-Application [-User <user>] [-Password <password>] [-Domain <domain>]

If the user does not give any parameter and runs only

Login-Application

I want to prompt him to enter the user, password, domain manually
I thought that I can use Get-Credentials for that.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Naaa... You dont need to for this. You can do a prompt like you normally would do in C# and store the creds in a system.management.automation.pscredential.pscredential Object. Tring to use Get-Credentials for this would be overly complicated as you have to handle the prompts.
