I have an application where I use the Global.asax.cs file to initialize the license file for Aspose word. It works like a charm on my local machine. It works like a charm when I use my local machine to connect to a remote server that hosts my application. It doesn't however work for some of the other people when they access the server from their machine. It is not consistent in that for some people (who do not have Aspose installed on their machine) it works fine WITHOUT garbage text, while for others (who also do not have Aspose installed on their machine) id DOES produce garbage text for the very same documents that we are using.
