I am attempting to load the SQL Server snapins in PowerShell and am having difficulty. Searching the web, I've done the following from plain PowerShell:

$framework=$([System.Runtime.InteropServices.RuntimeEnvironment]::GetRuntimeDirectory())
Set-Alias installutil "$($framework)installutil.exe"
installutil "d:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\PowerShell\Modules\SQLPS\Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.PSProvider.dll"
installutil "d:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\PowerShell\Modules\SQLPS\Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.PSSnapins.dll"

Open in new window

Which appears to execute properly with no errors. However, when I execute:
Add-PSSnapin SqlServerCmdletSnapin100

Open in new window

I get the following error:
Add-PSSnapin : The Windows PowerShell snap-in 'SqlServerCmdletSnapin100' is not installed on this machine.
At line:1 char:13
+ Add-PSSnapin <<<<  SqlServerCmdletSnapin100
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (SqlServerCmdletSnapin100:String) [Add-PSSnapin], PSArgumentException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AddPSSnapInRead,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.AddPSSnapinCommand

Open in new window

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Help!

I guess a better question, after more research, is why invoke-sqlcmd isn't working. If I execute get-pssnapin -registered, if reports:
Name        : SqlServerCmdletSnapin110
PSVersion   : 2.0
Description : This is a PowerShell snap-in that includes various SQL Server cmdlets.

Name        : SqlServerProviderSnapin110
PSVersion   : 2.0
Description : SQL Server Provider

Open in new window

but when I execute invoke-sqlcmd I get the following error:
The term 'invoke-sqlcmd' 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.
At line:11 char:14
+ invoke-sqlcmd <<<<  -serverinstance myServer -database myDatabase -inputfile ("c:\temp\ComplianceTests\ComplianceTestList.sql") | Out-File 
-FilePath "C:\temp\ComplianceTests\DSKCSRBSPRDDB1.txt"
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (invoke-sqlcmd:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

import-module sqlps is what I use
 Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query "SELECT GETDATE() AS TimeOfQuery;" -ServerInstance "Servername\InstanceName"

Open in new window

Sorry for the delay; busy work schedule and wife had surgery. Anyway, searching the internet, I found that and I tried import-module sqlps before posting and that did not work.
Strangely enough though, I tried it again and it seems to have worked this time.

It sure takes a lot longer to import the module than it did to load the snap-ins.
