Aspose.cells\20.5.0\netcoreapp2.1 has wrong dll

the contents of aspose.cells\20.5.0\lib\netcoreapp2.1 only has Aspose.Cells.GridWeb.dll.


Could you please share how you are configuring the API in your application. Either from downloads section on our website or from Nuget? Please share a sample project for our testing.We will reproduce the problem and provide our feedback after analysis.

I am consuming via nuget. and you dont need a sample project, just tell one of your devs that netcoreapp2.1 in the nuget has the wrong file

We were able to observe the issue but we need to look into it more. We have logged the issue in our database for investigation and for a fix. Once, we will have some news for you, we will update you in this topic.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. We have decided we will remove netcoreapp2.1 folder and only keep netstandard20 folder (which will contain supported Dlls) in the next (upcoming) release (e.g Aspose.Cells for .NET v20.6).

And what do you recommend in the meantime to do in order to be able to build Aspose.Cells?


Please use Aspose.Cells.Dll in netStandard20 folder for your needs.

Please use Aspose.Cells.Dll in netStandard20 folder for your needs.

@Amjad_Sahi that is not how nuget works. it will not let you use netStandard20 if you are targeting netcore3.1 or netStandard2.1. you need to release a new version of the package to fix this. until you do everyone who targets those runtimes will be broken when they upgrade.

I also need a fix for this to move on in our project


Please wait as our next official release (Aspose.Cells for .NET v20.6) is scheduled to be published (on Nuget and Downloads section) within the next 10 days or so). Please note, we only publish official releases on Nuget repos. We publish official release once in a month.


If possible, you may try to manually add reference (after removing existing one) to Aspose.Cells.Dll in netStandard20 folder if it works for your needs. If it still does not work, you have to wait for 7-10 days until we publish our next official release of the product on Nuget repos./Downloads section.

This is to inform you that we have already fixed your issue (logged earlier as “CELLSNETCORE-66”) in Aspose.Cells for .NET 20.6. You may get the version @ NuGet repos. here (https://www.nuget.org/packages/Aspose.Cells/20.6.0).
