I have a Windows 10 machine where I would like to run bcp from powershell to perform bulk copy operations against SQL Server 2019. Which package do I install to get bcp support Windows 10? Would rather not install full blown SQL server if possible.

BCP comes with "Command Line Utilities" package. You need to install "ODBC driver" first. Sending you the links for download

Microsoft ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server - Direct Download Link

Microsoft Command Line Utilities 15 for SQL Server (x64) - Direct Download Link


Looks like someone was kind enough to make a Chocolatey package to distribute bcp.

Here is the link to the package.
