ExportEmbeddedImages dont work as epected


I want to convert a document to an html file and export the images to the same folder.

I set ExportEmbeddedImages = true and ResourcesFolder=""

The images have been exported but the files are stored in a subfolder which has the same
name like the html file.

How can export the images to the same folder like the html file ?
And how can I make sure that the URL link in html file is relative (image001.png) and not absolute (c:\image001.png) ?

Kind regards,

Hi Tahir,

here is the document
image.zip (2.0 MB)

this is the code:

Document docWR = new Document(@"image.docx");
HtmlFixedSaveOptions saveOptionsFixed = new HtmlFixedSaveOptions();
saveOptionsFixed.ResourcesFolder = "";

docWR.Save(@"C:\Temp\Image.html", saveOptionsFixed);

The HTML file will be created at C:\Temp\image.html but the images are not
located in the same folder as expected but in a sub folder with the name ‘image’.

If you look at the HTML, the URL of the image relates to image/image001.png.

I have checked the API docu: api docu

‘If you save a document into a file and provide a file name, Aspose.Words, by default, saves the images in the same folder where the document file is saved.’

How can set it up to save it in the same folder ?

Kind regards,
