Aspose.Words version 21.7.0 can't decrypt Word file that created by Microsoft Office 2003

Hi guys,

I’m using Aspose.Words version 21.7.0 to decrypt the Word file that created by Microsoft Office 2003. But I can’t decrypt it, I received an error exception: “The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded.” when I run code as bellow:

            LoadOptions options = new LoadOptions();
            options.Password = password;
            Document doc = new Document(inputFile, options);
            doc.Save(outputFile, saveFormat);

I run on Windows 10, 64 bit.
Please investigate this problem.

Please extract the attached file to take the Word 2003 file.
Decrypt password for the Word file is “password”
