Calling Save() on a Aspose.Word.Document throws a System.NotSupportedException

Hi there.

I’m having some issues with using the Aspose.Word.Document class agains a particular Word document.

Briefly summarized, what I do is create a Document based on a MemoryStream, call Range.Replace on the document and call Save() with a reference back to the original MemoryStream.

With certain Word documents, the call to Save() causes a System.NotSupportedException(See the end of this message). The Exception proviedes me with little information as to why the exception occurs, and thus I’m finding quite tricky to figure out what is wrong with the document.

If I instead save the Document into a new MemoryStream, the Save() call exectues without error. However, I imaginge that if I do this, there will in effect be two Streams in memory at the same time and thus doubling the amount off memory used.

I’ve attached a Zip file containing a Visual Studio project that illustrates the problem, including two Word documents (On that fails, and one that does not) There are comments in the code that describes the problem.

Thanks for your request. Try to use the following code.

// get file bytes array.
byte[] file = File.ReadAllBytes(@"225_96594_stian\test_file_that_fails.doc");
using (MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(file))
    Document doc = new Document(stream);
    doc.Range.Replace("{document_title}", "min tittel", false, false);
    doc.Save(stream, SaveFormat.Doc);
    // save stream to file.
    FileStream strm = new FileStream(@"225_96594_stian\out.doc", FileMode.OpenOrCreate);

Also I have used the latest version of Aspose.Words. You can get the latest version here:
