The program will also download invoice file attachment (PDF), if invoice has attachment.

For the attachment download to work, it is needed to modify the app.config file to have in Severa.API.IInvoice binding:

<binding name="Severa.API.IInvoice" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferSize="2097152" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="2097152" messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" transferMode="Buffered" useDefaultWebProxy="true">
<readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringContentLength="8192" maxArrayLength="2097152" maxBytesPerRead="4096" maxNameTableCharCount="16384" />
<security mode="Transport">
<transport clientCredentialType="None" proxyCredentialType="None" realm="" />
<message clientCredentialType="UserName" algorithmSuite="Default" />

Otherwise the PDF file size will exceed the default limits.

PDF is saved to the ...\InvoiceLoader\bin\Debug folder.
