Aspose.HTML v19.2.0 requires Microsoft.Windows.Compatibility (>= 2.0.0) as dependencie


we recognized that Aspose.HTML v19.2.0 officially requires Microsoft.Windows.Compatibility (>= 2.0.0) as dependency. It is possible to remove this dependency for .NET-Framework, isn’t it? It seems to me that it is not necessary anymore. Your response is awaited.

Best regards

Thank you for being patient.

We have investigated dependencies used by Aspose.HTML for .NET API. Currently .NET Standard 2.0 requires Microsoft.Windows.Compatibility so it cannot be removed, but it can be simplified. Dependencies in latest version of the API look like this:

  • .NETFramework 2.0
    No dependencies.

  • .NETFramework 3.5
    No dependencies.

  • .NETFramework 4.0
    No dependencies.

  • .NETStandard 2.0

  1. System.Drawing.Common (>= 4.5.0)
  2. System.Security.Permissions (>= 4.5.0)
  3. System.Text.Encoding.CodePages (>= 4.5.0)
