could u pls rezip and share it with me, thanks


It seems a bad download (you could not download the fix properly due to your internet/network) or your zip tool could not extract it. Please remove the existing fix and then re-download it again and give it a try. By the way, I use WinRAR tool which successfully opens the fix (I first downloaded the fix which I shared previously) into it, see the screenshot for your reference.

Hello Amjad, we managed to sort out the network issue and download the two files, however we seem to have a licensing issue.

“The subscription included in this license allows free upgrades until 30 Nov 2020, but this version of the product was released on 04 Dec 2020. Please renew the subscription or use a previous version of the product.”

does this mean we need to purchase a new license?



Yes, you need to upgrade your subscription to use the fix as your current license cannot use any Aspose.Cells version or fix that is released after your subscription expiry date (30 Nov 2020).

The issues you have found earlier (filed as CELLSNET-47753) have been fixed in this update. This message was posted using Bugs notification tool by simon.zhao
