Exception "User password can't be same as owner password"

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


PdfFileSecurity sec = new PdfFileSecurity(stampedStream, securedStream);

documentPrivilege.AllowScreenReaders = true;

DocumentPrivilege documentPrivilege = DocumentPrivilege.ForbidAll; documentPrivilege.AllowPrint = true;

sec.EncryptFile(null, null, documentPrivilege, KeySize.x128);

We receive exception:

Aspose.Pdf.Exceptions.InvalidPasswordException was caught

Message=User password can't be same as owner password



at Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfFileSecurity.[1](String , String , String , Permissions , CryptoAlgorithm )

at Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfFileSecurity.EncryptFile(String userPassword, String ownerPassword, DocumentPrivilege privilege, KeySize keySize)

But summary for method
EncryptFile say:

Encrypts Pdf file with userpassword and ownerpassword and sets the document's privileges to access. The user password and the owner password can be null or empty. The owner password will be replaced with a random string if the input owner password is null or empty.

Hello Igor,

Thanks for using our products. As far as I can understand, the issue might be occurring because you are using some password protected document as input and trying to apply security restrictions without first decrypting it. If so is the case, then please first decrypt the source file using DecryptFile method of PdfFileSecurity class. In case the problem still persists, please share the source PDF document so that we can test the scenario at our end. We apologize for your inconvenience.
