Aspose.Cells not supported on macOS due to System.Drawing.Common (>= 7.0.0) dependency

Microsoft has removed support of the * System.Drawing.Common (>= 7.0.0) package on macOS with the release of NET70, and the latest Aspose.Cells package has a >= 7.0.0 constraint for this package. Could you please roll back to >= 6.0.0 until this dependency is removed and the package is fully compatible with macOS?


It seems you are using latest version/fix, i.e., Aspose.Cells 23.1.0. We have both options now. I think you may try to use SkiaSharp library instead of System.Drawing.Common on non-Windows systems. See the document for your reference.

Hi @Amjad_Sahi, thanks for the quick reply.
Unfortunately that solution is not ideal, as if any other library uses System.Drawing.Common on NET60, the chain is broken. Would be better to just have the >6.0.0 constraint and let the users select the most appropriate versions.


We are sorry that the suggested option may not suit your needs. Anyways, we will evaluate your requirements in details and get back to you.


After discussing with the team (internally), we have decided that we will release v23.1.1 to Nuget repos. that uses System.Drawing.Common 6.0.0 for Aspose.Cells for .NET6 assembly.

Aspose.Cells 23.1.1 is available on nuget now. Please try it.

Thanks for the super quick update! I’ve just checked here, but it seems like there’s one more place to update the dependency on the package:

I.e. the net7.0-windows7.0 target still mentions System.Drawing.Common >= 7.0.0, where it could also be set to >=6.0.0 and still work fine (this is Microsoft’s own recommendation to keep using the System.Drawing package on macOS for now)

We will update the dependency of Net7.0 in next release version 23.2.
