Cannot load Windows7 WordPad docx

Attached is a docx file, saved with Microsoft Windows 7 WordPad.
Windows 7 WordPad has a “Save As” “Office Open XML” menu .

Aspose.Word cannot load this file and says “Unknown file format”.

Actually, WordPad generated docx has less information than docxfrom Word 2007,
but it is hard for us to tell our customers that
WordPad docx is different from Word docx .

Are you going to support this file format too ?


Thanks for your inquiry. I can successfully open/save the attached document. Also I checked with newly created by WordPad DOCX and also can open it using Aspose.Words.
I use the latest version of Aspose.Words for testing. You can download it from here:
Best regards,

Thank you for your information.
I’ve renewed my Aspose license, and will try it.
