Exchange 2010 using C# and ASP.net to create mailboxes using remote shell connect

here is a nice code snippest:
SecureString password = new SecureString();

string str_password = “pass”;

string username = “userr”;

string liveIdconnectionUri = “http://exchange.Domain.local/Powershell?serializationLevel=Full”;

foreach (char x in str_password)




PSCredential credential = new PSCredential(username, password);

// Set the connection Info

WSManConnectionInfo connectionInfo = new WSManConnectionInfo((new Uri(liveIdconnectionUri)), “http://schemas.microsoft.com/powershell/Microsoft.Exchange”,


connectionInfo.AuthenticationMechanism = AuthenticationMechanism.Default;

// create a runspace on a remote path

// the returned instance must be of type RemoteRunspace

Runspace runspace = System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace(connectionInfo);

PowerShell powershell = PowerShell.Create();

PSCommand command = new PSCommand();


command.AddParameter(“Identity”, usercommonname);

command.AddParameter(“Alias”, userlogonname);

command.AddParameter(“Database”, “MBX_SBG_01”);

powershell.Commands = command;



// open the remote runspace


// associate the runspace with powershell

powershell.Runspace = runspace;

// invoke the powershell to obtain the results

return = powershell.Invoke();


catch (Exception ex)






// dispose the runspace and enable garbage collection


runspace = null;

// Finally dispose the powershell and set all variables to null to free

// up any resources.


powershell = null;

    i use this code from a windows sever 2003 32-bit , i connect succesfully to my exchange 2010 which runs on a 64-bit machine but the only commands that run succesfully are :
    command.AddCommand(“Get-Group”); and

    every other command that i try to use for example Get-Group i have an error like:

    The term ‘Get-Groups’ 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.

    could you please explain me why this happens??????????????
