Double free memory on Linux

Hello Aspose team,

I encountered double free memory or corruption when converting multiple Excel files to image (JPEG) on Linux concurrently. It happened randomly so it’s quite hard to reproduce. I also attached the backtrace on error for more information.

Environment: Aspose.Cells 22.3, CentOS 7, .NET 6.0

var options = new ImageOrPrintOptions
OnePagePerSheet = false,
ImageType = ImageType.Jpeg,
PrintingPage = PrintingPageType.Default

foreach(var sheet in workbook.Worksheets)
var sr = new SheetRender(sheet, options);
for(int j = 0; j < sr.PageCount; j++)
var imgOut = $“outfile_{j}.jpg”
sr.ToImage(j, imgOut);

Backtrace on error:

It is hard to evaluate your issue based on your given details and artifacts. Also, your issue occurred randomly as you pointed out. We need a simulation project with template file(s) to reproduce the issue on our end. So, please share with us a simulation project with sample files to reproduce the issue. We will check your issue soon.


Please find the test program and samples attached. Then run it a few times until the issue happens. :grinning:

Hi @dunghnguyen
I can run your project, and test dozens of times, but the problem didn’t happen.
My test Environment is Ubuntu20.04, net6, memory 2GB.

I noticed that the 4 test files you provided had previously solved a problem caused by a special character, but the next version will take effect.

Can you remove the special characters in 4 files, so that all the pictures generate normally, try test in your environment, whether there is any “coredump” exception found?

Hi @leoluo.
I try with another set of samples and can reproduce the problem. Below is more details about my test environment and samples, and core dump attached.

Repository packages-microsoft-com-prod is listed more than once in the configuration
libgdiplus.x86_64 2.10-10.el7 @epel

I notice that your version is:
libgdiplus0.x86_64 6.0.5-0.xamarin.1.epel7

Mine is:
libgdiplus.x86_64 2.10-10.el7

I’ve looked up some information, and different libgdiplus versions really can lead to different results:

If you can confirm how you installed this libgdiplus version, my install command is:

sudo yum install libgdiplus

Hi @leoluo.

I followed the instruction here to install libgdiplus.

Thank you.


Thanks for your confirmation.

We have logged an investigation ticket with an id “CELLSNETCORE-379” for your issue. We will evaluate and look into the details of the problem.
