Aspose.words new version

I’m trying to put in the new version of Aspose.Words into my program. I’ve deleted reference to Aspose.dll & then added the new reference to the version 14.2.

I’m receiving the following error: "Could not load file or assembly ‘Aspose.Words,
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=716fcc553a201e56’ or
one of its dependencies. The located assembly’s manifest definition does
not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)"

Please advise.

Thank you,


Hi Melissa,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Please first remove Aspose.Words completely from your system. Then remove the reference to old Aspsoe.Word.dll from your project. Also, delete associated files from your project’s bin folder if present. Then install the latest version of Aspose.Word via msi installer. Add reference to this new DLL in your project and re-build it. Please let us know how it goes on your side. I hope, this will help.

PS: To check version of the library, right click on the dll, select Properties from the context menu, then select Details/Version tab. You will see File version.
