To execute PowerShell commands and scripts using an already existing PowerShell instance in C#, you can use the following steps:

  1. Import the Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands namespace and create a new PowerShell instance.
using System.Management.Automation;
PowerShell ps = PowerShell.Create();
  1. Pass the PowerShell script or command to the PowerShell instance and execute it.
var results = ps.Invoke();
  1. Access the result of the PowerShell execution and manipulate it as necessary.
foreach (var result in results)
  1. Close the PowerShell instance when you're finished.

You can also use the PowerShell RunspacePool class to manage multiple PowerShell instances and configuration options.
