    Hi

    I have a PowerShell script that converts pdf together based on the file name. A number of these have failed due to the following error:

    PdfReader not opened with owner password

    I have seen posts relating to c# scripts which suggest setting unethicalreading to True. I have also seen post relating to legal issues doing this – is it ok to do this? If so, how can you do this in PowerShell? C# can be done using:

    iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfReader.unethicalreading

    but I can find unethicalreading using PowerShell.

    Many thanks
    Paul

    In PowerShell it would look like this:

    [iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfReader]::unethicalreading = $true

    As for legal issues, no idea, but if they really wanted to password-protect a PDF file, it would be encrypted, and that "unethicalreading" option wouldn't exist.
