Error opening a password protected workbook (Aspose.Cells): "Index and count must refer to a location within the buffer. Parameter name: bytes"

Hi,
I encountered an error while opening a password protected workbook using Aspose.Cells (version: 5.1.3.0).
I have seen this issue has been raised on the Aspose website, but I couldn’t find a answer leading to a solution.
Can you help please? Thanks.
