Failed to load Doc file (169.3 KB)

I have the attached file. It’s a .doc file. It can be opened by Microsoft Office normally.
But when I try to load this file using Aspose Word For NET 19.2.0, it throws exception

Unable to cast object of type ’ ’ to type ’ ’

Could you please help me to check what’s wrong with the file?
