To run a PowerShell Script from SSIS package

From this thread:

To run a PowerShell Script from SSIS package. Add a “Execute Process Task” in SSIS and use the following command text.

This works just great, plus the “-ExecutionPolicy ByPass” switch will take care of any server script policies.


C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -command “. ‘L:\Powershell_Script\Script1.ps1’ ‘param1’ ‘param2′”

Copy Files with Powershell in XP as Scheduled Task

I have a requirement to copy pdf files on my web server to a folder for FTP and another location for archiving. I have searched a while and came up with a Powershell script on my developer XP machine .

First  Ineed to run this command under Powershell command:

set-executionpolicy RemoteSigned

and I responded with yes to allow the Powershell script to run.

The script I wrote to copy files (only pdf file)  from one folder to two destination folders and the file is saved as copyFilesTest.ps1 in my test folder. The file extension is ps1.

Here is the code in the file:

# source and destionation folder

$source = “C:\test\jingyang”
$destination1  = “C:\tes\jingyang_destination1”
$destination2  = “C:\tes\jingyang_destination2”

$files = Get-ChildItem -Filter *.pdf -Path $source -Recurse

Foreach($file in $files)


Copy-Item -Path $file.fullname -Destination $destination1  -Force
Copy-Item -Path $file.fullname -Destination $destination2  -Force

After the test run of the script in Powershell, I create a bat file to execute the file. The file with .bat extension looks like this in my case:

powershell -command “& ‘C:\test\Scripts\copyFilesTest.ps1′”

Last, from Scheduled Task GUI, I setup a new task to point to the bat file I just created and pick a schedule time to run this script.
