will there be async/await support for the async-methods? (Your Task implementation isn't awaitable)

You're confusing two different Chilkat API's...

Be sure to look at the reference documentation for "C# WinRT" or "VB.NET WinRT" instead of the non-WinRT documentation for "C#" and "VB.NET"

see http://www.chilkatsoft.com/reference.asp

Thanks for the quick response!

Now I'm confused. Where can I find a description about the differences? Is the WinRT version still for the dekstop framework (e.g. 4.5.2) and WinForms Applications?

The WinRT version is for programs built for WinRT (Windows Store). The differences follow the same pattern everywhere -- wherever you see an Async method that returns a Chilkat.Task object in the non-WinRT version, you'll find the corresponding async (awaitable) method in the Chilkat WinRT API..

Why is the .net Framework Task not used in the non-WinRT Version? There is one (awaitable), too.

It's possible to await your Chilkat.Task Implementation (see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/pfxteam/archive/2011/01/13/10115642.aspx) Would be nice.

bump It would be great if this also available for non store apps! It's the way to go on future .Net Framework APIs.
