Calling Powershell from C#.

Calling Powershell from C#

In the solution explorer, add a project reference to the System.Management.Automation. I always found this in 

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Management.Automation;
using System.Management.Automation.Host;
using System.Management.Automation.Provider;
using System.Management.Automation.Runspaces;
using System.Collections.ObjectModel;

namespace PowerShell_Call
    class Program

        public static string name(string args)

            using (PowerShell powershell = PowerShell.Create().AddCommand("Get-Process").AddArgument(args))
                foreach (PSObject result in powershell.Invoke())
                    return result.Members["id"].Value.ToString();

            return "";

        static void Main(string[] args)

            string x = "apnmcp";
            string v=name(x);          
            Console.WriteLine("The value is {0}", v);


Output :

Console Application

Powershell Output.
