FileCorruptedException is thrown while importing RTF using Java


first of all, some info :slight_smile:

I’m using last version of aspose in a springboot from linux:


Some rtf docs fail when opening them like:

com.aspose.words.Document document = asposeFactory.getDocument(in);

With an exception:

Caused by: com.aspose.words.FileCorruptedException: The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded.

While these rtf files can be opened without any issue by using Ms Office Word or OpenOffice, they crash when opening via aspose, so I cannot work with them.

It seems it is about an hyperlink so I created the smallest as possible rtf (removing superfluous data) that makes aspose to trigger the exception.

Thanks in advance (10.0 KB)


We have tested the scenario and have managed to reproduce the same issue at our side for document link_not_working_with_aspose.rtf.

Thank you @tahir.manzoor for you fast answer, we will wait for that WORDSNET-21628 one :slight_smile:


Hopefully, you will get the fix of this issue in the next version of Aspose.Words i.e. 21.2. Please note that this ETA is not final at the moment. We will inform you via this forum thread once it is resolved.
