Post data to a form via Proxy

I want to be able to submit a webform with some values, however my simple code just says:-
The term 'Invoke-WebRequest' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name,
 or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.


My code is quite simple, and dont see why it should not work:-
$postParams = @{username='me';moredata='qwerty'}
$test = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://example.com/foobar" -Method POST -Body $postParams -Proxy '172.16.8.11:3128'

Open in new window


Any ideas?

Thank you

Are you running PS 3.0 or greater?  That cmdlet was introduced in PS 3.0.

You were right, I did upgrade to Powershell 3.0 but now I just get a different error message. Ive opened up a new question under Q_28374722 would you mind looking at it to see where Im going wrong now?

Thank you
