I have created a ps1 file that i want to use to automate the creation of sharepoint 2010 sites etc. The commands themselves work fine when entered through the sharepoint powershell management module, however when i save my commands as a PS1 file and try to execute them I get errors that the commands dont exist.

I know this is due to the differences between the standard powershell and the sharepoint powershell modules. I think I need to call the sharepoint module at the beginning of my PS1 script but I dont know how to do this.

Have you tried using the Management Shell?.... The Sharepoint module(s) will already be available here:

To access the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell
1.On the Start menu, click All Programs.

2.Click Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products.

3.Click SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.

Thanks, I understand that however I am trying to save this as a PS1 script. So when you double click on it it will load the modules necessary.

makes sense.

Try adding this to the beginning of your script:

Add-PSSNapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell
