Hello community,

here a sample code how to use Quick PDF ActiveX Library Lite inside PowerShell. It is only necessary to build an interoperability library via type library importer of the .NET SDK.

Enjoy it.

Cheers
Stefan

Hello Stefan
Look at my AutoIt UDF for Debenu QuickPDF
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/files/file/342-debenu-quick-pdf-library-udf/

I think it will be usefull for Powershell users.
As it is very easy to convert functions.

Best regards,
mLipok
