Hi Team,
i am trying to connect postgres ODBC driver into SQL server data project to compare the Schema.
Power Shell script is:
ion Get-ODBC-Data{
param([string]$query=$(throw 'query is required.'))
$conn = New-Object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection
$conn.ConnectionString = "Driver={PostgreSQL Unicode(x64)};Server=localhost;Port=5432;Database=nyc_data;Uid=postgres;Pwd=postgres;"
$conn.open()
$cmd = New-object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcCommand($query,$conn)
$ds = New-Object system.Data.DataSet
(New-Object system.Data.odbc.odbcDataAdapter($cmd)).fill($ds) | out-null
$conn.close()
$ds.Tables[0]
}

function Set-ODBC-Data{
param([string]$query=$(throw 'query is required.'))
$conn = New-Object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection
$conn.ConnectionString= "Driver={PostgreSQL Unicode(x64)};Server=localhost;Port=5432;Database=nyc_data;Uid=postgres;Pwd=postgres;"
$cmd = new-object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcCommand($query,$conn)
$conn.open()
$cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
$conn.close()
}
$query = "select * from ***"
$result = Get-ODBC-Data -query $query
set-odbc-data -query $query

in Power shell script it's successfully connected and same code moved to pre build event in sql server data base project.
getting the below error and please help me on this?

    Hi,
    The error code 255 usually means that it is not able to find the file you are asking it to execute. Please make sure all the paths are correct. As it could be a MSBuild issue, you could add the tag "vs-msbuild".

    Best Regards,

    Ian
