Aspose.Word.Word is obsolete: Use the License Class Instead


I have switched over to the new licensing but get this warnning message “Aspose.Word.Word is obsolete: Use the License Class Instead” when I try to dim an Aspose.Word.Word object. Can you tell me why?

Dim oWord As Aspose.Word.Word


Word class and its methods are marked obsolete and will give compiler warnings when used in new versions of Aspose.Word component. This class should be used only for licenses purchased before 2005/01/22. Please use License class and its
method for licenses purchased after that date.


You can also request to upgrade your license to the new format (please qoute your order ID). This is free and a good idea to do so because the new licenses are less restrictive and you essentially get more than you bought originally.
