Copy VB.NET DLL which uses Aspose.Words to the server

Hello, we created VB.NET 2008 class library application which uses Aspose.Words to convert HTML documents to .doc files. We need to copy it to the server now. What technical requirements are to make it work on the server? Do we need to install Aspose.Words on that server or just copy Aspose.Words.lic file?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your support.


Hi Inessa,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. You should copy Aspose.Words.dll and Aspose.Words.lic files. In your Application these files are placed in the Bin folder I think.

Best regards.

Hi Alexey,

thanks for your reply. Yes, we copied the whole application with Aspose.Words.dll file in Bin directory to the server but when we try to connect to this application from ASP page we are getting this message:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Server.CreateObject Failed

May be it's not Aspose.Words problem but if you have any suggestion please let us know.

Thanks a lot. Inessa

Hi<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. Maybe you should register Aspose.Words.dll in GAC.

gacutil /i C:\Program Files\Aspose\Aspose.Words\Bin\net2.0\Aspose.Words.dll.

Best regards.

We registered Aspose.Words.dll we have under the Bin directory inside our application in GAC and still the same error message.
