Cannot login to site with Passphrase

Hi I'm using WinSCP 5.9.5.0

I've made a script to download some files from a remote site which uses a private key and a passphrase.

The Winscp part of the script is
{
# Load WinSCP .NET assembly
Add-Type -Path "E:\location\WinSCPnet.dll"
# Setup session options
$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
Protocol = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
HostName = "data.xxxxxxxxxx.com"
UserName = "my username"
PrivateKeyPassphrase = "*P,7$+Y#}^k@^"
SshPrivateKeyPath = "E:\location\bdl.ppk"
SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 1024 the fingerprint"
}

And when I run the script I'm getting
Member "PrivateKeyPassphrase" not found for the given .NET object.

What am I doing wrong?

Your code is correct. If it does not work, it's probably because you are actually not using WinSCP .NET assembly 5.9.5, but some older one.

Sorry, I do not understand. What "another place"? How are you "directing it"?

With directing, I meant "Add-Type -Path "E:\location\WinSCPnet.dll"
But I've found it...
It seemed that I had to close the powershell windows and reopen it, because it held the old dll in memeory instead of loading the correct one with the "Add-Type -Path "E:\location\WinSCPnet.dll" command
