AsposeSvg:TypeInitializationException:The type initializer for 'Gdip' threw an exception

I’m building an application that runs on both windows and macos.

This application converts svg to bmp.

On Windows (10) it works but on MacOs I get:

TypeInitializationException:The type initializer for ‘Gdip’ threw an exception.

We’re using the latest AsposeSvg and the app is built in .net 6.

See code example:

Would you kindly make sure that libgdiplus package is installed and up-to-date in the system running macOS at your side? In case issue still occurs, please let us know.

Yes it’s installed:
