Back again...

So when I try to open up a session with a remote server I get the following (after debugging):
System.ExecutionEngineException was unhandled
Message="Exception of type 'System.ExecutionEngineException' was thrown."

I know that you guys don't support PowerShell, but it would be great if you did. I'd really like to be able to do this from within a script... not managed code.

Here is a stripped down version of trying to open the session:
# Load the base SecureBlackbox assembly.
add-type -Path "C:\Program Files\EldoS\SecureBlackbox.NET\Assemblies\NET_20\SecureBlackbox.dll"

# Load the session license.
[SBUtils.Unit]::SetLicenseKey("...really long key...")

# Next load the SFTP assembly.
add-type -Path "C:\Program Files\EldoS\SecureBlackbox.NET\Assemblies\NET_20\SecureBlackbox.SFTP.dll"

# Create me an SFTP client object and configure it up.
$SFTPClient = new-object SBSimpleSftp.TElSimpleSFTPClient
$SFTPClient.Address = "myserver.reallycooldomain.com"
$SFTPClient.Port = "22"
$SFTPClient.UseInternalSocket = $True

########## Will switch to publickey later.
$SFTPClient.UserName = "myuser"
$SFTPClient.Password = "mypassword"

# Just a place holder for the event... would have code here to check the key.
[ScriptBlock] $action = {write-host $args}

register-objectevent $SFTPClient OnKeyValidate -SourceIdentifier SBSimpleSftp.TElSimpleSFTPClient -Action $action

# And here is where we crash.

Thank you for contacting us.

If I understand right that the "add-type" command references the assembly to use, then please consider referencing SecureBlackbox.SSHClient, SecureBlackbox.SSHCommon and SecureBlackbox.SFTPCommon assemblies as well.

If this does not help, please provide us the call stack when the exception is thrown. It is also a good idea to investigate the exception object to get the information about the underlying exception.

Nope... adding the other assemblies did not help. Here is the debug output and call stack (I'm a little rusty), but this should be what you need. As for looking at the exception, I can't the PowerShell process is tanking.

Hmm, the call stack is quite strange and does not shed any light at the reason of the issue. Basing on the original exception message one might assume that there is some execution environment problem (such as impossibility to load an assembly or type). Please try to add SBB assemblies to GAC and check if it helps.

We have created a similar script and managed to connect to the test server with it. However, we introduced minor modifications to your code, as we were unable to handle SBB events from Powershell as they do not match EventHandler type signature (as far as we understood, it is not possible to use delegate types other than .NET EventHandler type). That's why we used TrustedKeys property to specify the trusted keys file instead of OnKeyValidate event.

Hmmmm... yes, you are most likely right about EventHandler type.

Thanks for your help... I'll see if I can get this to work. But, it looks like I will need to switch over to the SharpSSH. That seems to be working ok.

At your wish. From our side, we will also investigate this issue and probably publish some samples or guidelines on using SBB with Powershell.

Cool... samples would be really nice. Heck... giving me a snap-in with some cmdlets would rock my world.

Being able to do this from the CLI or a script file would be the coolest thing since sliced bread.
