Direct dll reference to file without msi installation?


Do I have to install the msi and use the registered .NET component, or does it still work if I instead reference the dll file directly in the project, without running the installation msi on the server I am using it on?

Best regards, Richard

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your inquiry. Aspose.Words for .NET is easy to deploy because it consists of just a single assembly without any dependencies (except on the .NET Framework itself). Aspose.Words.dll is CLS compliant, written entirely in C# and contains only safe managed code.

Yes, you can use Aspose.Words without using MSI installer. You can add Aspose.Words.dll in your project reference list to work with Aspose.Words library. Please download Aspose.Words for .NET 11.11.0 (DLLs only) from here:

Thank you very much for your reply!
