I created a script in PowerShell 2.0 that works like a charm. It runs an exe file that downloads a file from a ftp site. I then went into SQL Server Management Studio 2012, launched the power shell. I then used the command to get me to the regular PowerShell. I then tried to run my script and I got an error on the executable. I get the red error that it is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. The script with the exe file in it worked fine if I did not go through the sql PowerShell first. Any help would be great. The code that I am using in the regular PowerShell looks like this:

$date = (get-date -Format yyyyMMddHH)
$path = 'c:\program files (x86)\ipswitch\ws_ftp 12\'
cd\
Push-location $path

& wsftppro.exe -s PCC_FTP:/eslcrrdbuser/logs/LOG_us_eslc_multi_replica_$date.sqb -d local:c:\logs\

I do realize I will have to add the Start-Process PowerShell

Any help would be great!
