File is Damaged aspose.pdf 6.4.2

Hello all. Of course, this is an urgent request...(could it possibly be otherwise??) :)

The code below worked without issue under the Aspose.pdf.kit

after upgrading to aspose.pdf 6.4.2 we get the 'File is Damaged' problem in almost 80% of our pdf documents.

If System.IO.File.Exists(MyPDFUrl) Then

MyPageCount = Me.DetermineNumberOfPages(MyPDFUrl)

MyFileStream = New FileStream(MyPDFUrl, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read)

MyOutStream = New MemoryStream

MyMender = New Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfFileMend(MyFileStream, MyOutStream)

MyPDFText = Me.BuildUserSignature(GuestKeyIn)

For MyPage As Integer = 1 To MyPageCount

MyMender.AddText(MyPDFText, MyPage, MyLowerX, MyLowerY)



Throw New System.IO.FileNotFoundException("File not found", MyPDFUrl)

End If

the above code is used to build the memory stram in one method and is used in another method here:

If MyPDFStream IsNot Nothing Then

ContextIn.Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", If(PDFInSameWindow, "inline;", "attachment") & " filename=" & Me.CreatePDFFileName(MediaItemIn))

ContextIn.Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"

ContextIn.Response.AppendHeader("Accept-Ranges", "none")






Throw New Exception("MediaItemIn did not produce a PDF MemoryStream from BuildWaterMarkedPDFStream")

End If

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

Please accept our apologies regarding this. I have tested your issue again and I am able to reproduce the issue. I have re-opened your issue and asked the development team to check the issue. Also, I have change the priority to high for a high priority rectification. I will update you via this forum thread regarding any update against your issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

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

I got the following feedback from the development team regarding your issue. Please update your code to rectify the problem you are facing now with v6.6. Please replace the GetBuffer() with ToArray() in your code and the code will work fine. The GetBuffer() method gets the buffer with unused zero bytes which breaks Adobe view. Please update the following line in your code and if you still any problem, please do let us know.


Thank You & Best Regards,

Hi Nausherwan,

This release, along with the code modification your team suggested seems to have resolved our problem.

Thank You & Best Regards
