Exception threw "The document appears to be corrupt and cannot load" when trying to load RTF file


Hi team,

I have an issue with Aspose Word when trying to load a RTF file, I received an error exception “The document appears to be corrupt and cannot load”.

Here is my sample code:
Document doc = new Document(Dir + “Sample.rtf”);
doc.Save(out_file, SaveFormat.Pdf);

I’m using Aspose Word
