Aspose words with net core 2.0.3 on openshift

I have a net core 2.0.3 project with aspose words 18.0.1 and skiasharp 1.6 that works fine on my computer but iam trying to run my project on openshift and getting the following exception:

The type initializer for ‘SkiaSharp.SKImageInfo’ threw an exception.

Here is my code:
public string PostWord(IFormFile file)
using(MemoryStream postFile = new MemoryStream())
using(MemoryStream htmlStream = new MemoryStream())
using(MemoryStream xmlStream = new MemoryStream())
Document doc = new Document(postFile);
doc.Save(xmlStream, SaveFormat.WordML);

            doc.Save(htmlStream, new HtmlSaveOptions
                  ExportImageAsBase64 = true,
                  Encoding = Encoding.UTF8,
                  SaveFormat = SaveFormat.Html

      return "succ";
catch (System.Exception e)
return e.Message;

any idea why this happens?


Thanks for your inquiry. We suggest you please always install Aspose.Words for .NET via NuGet.

I changed to skiasharp 1.59.1 and now my aspose is like the nuget version

The inner exception iam getting is
Unable to load DLL ‘libSkiaSharp’: The specified module or on of its dependencies could not be found


Please uninstall/delete all old Aspose.Words.dll references from your Visual Studio project (and related DLLs from Bin folder). After that please use NuGet Package Manager UI to install Aspose.Words for .NET NuGet package. This will also install external references such as SkiaSharp to your project. Hope this helps you.

Thanks for your help but iam not using any dll references,only nuget packages. The skiasharp 1.59.1 is installed automatically with my aspose version (18.1.0)
