    I have been creating a meeting invitation script. And I am running into two different options of creating the Outlook application object and I was wondering what the difference of the two would be.

    So the ones I am seeing are as follows:

    [Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialname("Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook")

    -and

    New-Object -comobject Outlook.application

    Now does one give me more functionality over the other and simply what are the main differences are the two questions I have at the moment.

    No difference. Two different ways of doing the same thing.

    From my understanding, "LoadWithPartialName" is a deprecated method. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/12xc5368(v=vs.110).aspx

    I would use the second just for readability and support.
