I'm just starting with WinSCP and Powershell. I've been using WinSCP in SSIS with much success - Thank you Martin! I can't seem to get started with Powershell. I'm on Windows 10 and Powershell 5 using the Windows Powershell ISE as an Administrator. I'm stuck using WinSCP 5.5.6 right now.

My test errors out right at the beginning.

    # Load WinSCP .NET assembly
    Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCPnet.dll"
    # Setup session options
    $sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions
    $sessionOptions.Protocol = [WinSCP.Protcol]::Sftp

Error: Unable to find type [WinSCP.Protcol].

Thanks for your help and pointing me in the right direction.

It's Protocol, not Protcol.
