Convert html to pdf does throw an exception when calling from vsto plugin

Hi all,

we are looking for a .net pdf library to save mails from outlook in pdf.
At the moment I am trying to integrate aspose.pdf into an outlook vsto plugin. I want to save the mail body as html and then convert them into pdf via aspose.pdf.
But if I try to open the html file in aspose and convert it to pdf it throws me an exception “failed to parse base url”.
The same setup with a console application works fine so it seems that it is something related to calling aspose.pdf from a vsto addin.

HtmlLoadOptions htmloptions = new HtmlLoadOptions();
Document doc = new Document(@“e:\temp\basic.html”, htmloptions);

I can also recreate the error with a new vsto project.

Any suggestions
Best regards,
