Running Splunk in PowerShell on Windows

Explorer

Hello, I am a totally newbie with Splunk
I have set up a universal forwarder. It seems to be working ok and sending stuff to the indexer

my question is running the Splunk via CLI on PowerShell.
i have tried both via PowerShell cmdshell

So, I cd to the bin dir

cd PS C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\bin
./splunk status
./splunk help

When i hit enter, another window quickly pops up and goes away

Thanks for any help
