Powershell initialization


I wondering how can i use this product with Powershell.

For example i try to read pst file information:

PS C:> [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom(".\Aspose\net4.0\Aspose.Email.dll")

Component is loaded, and i can create object

PS C:> New-Object Aspose.Email.Outlook.Pst.PersonalStorage

RootFolder :

DisplayName :

Format :

CanWrite :

MessageStoreProperties :

IsUnicode :

But i can’t load pst:

PS C:> New-Object Aspose.Email.Outlook.Pst.PersonalStorage.FromFile(“E:\archive.pst”)

New-Object : Cannot find type [Aspose.Email.Outlook.Pst.PersonalStorage.FromFile]: make sure the assembly containing this type is loaded.

PS C:> New-Object Aspose.Email.Outlook.Pst.PersonalStorage | gm

I’ve tried to register dll with regasm, and load it as COM object

PS C:> New-Object -ComObject Aspose.Email.Outlook.Pst.PersonalStorage.FromFile(“E:\archive.pst”)

but with the same results.

What is the right way to use this component from Powershell?

Problem solved, thanks to all)
It’s need to use such command to execute methods declared as static
[Aspose.Email.Outlook.Pst.PersonalStorage]::fromfile($pst, $false)
