Stop Powershell from opening when running SSIS package

Manny 151 Reputation points


I am using PowerShell to automate some file work in SSIS. When I run the task in SSIS it runs fine but for a brief second I see the Powershell window open and close very quickly. Is there a way to stop that from happening? The script I have is below:

Get-ChildItem 'C:\Users\Me\ZipFolder' -Filter *.zip | 
    Expand-Archive -DestinationPath 'C:\Users\Me\Temp_Files' -Force

Thank you

    I suppose that would depend on how SSIS runs your script. If they launch Powershell they can use the "-WindowStyle Hidden" parameter, but that's on SSIS.
