Gdiplus.dll missing when words to pdf

Hi everyone! I’m trying to convert an edited .words file to pdf via my unity app.

As the doc says I’m using doc.Save(“myDoc.pdf”);

However I receive this error message :

DllNotFoundException: gdiplus.dll
System.Drawing.GDIPlus…cctor ()
Rethrow as TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type initializer for System.Drawing.GDIPlus
System.Drawing.Image.InitFromStream (System.IO.Stream stream)

(wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check) System.Drawing.Bitmap:.ctor (System.IO.Stream)

I dragged gdiplus.dll in my assets folder but same issue… Anyone has an idea? Thanks in advance!

Hi! Sorry for the delay… I not solved my issue yet. gdiplus.dll in my my Assets/Plugins folder, and I can see (exporting the project from unity to android studio) that the .dll is exported. However I still have the issue when I try to save as pdf a words document.

Help! :wink:

Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback. It seems gdiplus.dll does not load on Unity Mac. Please check following post. It seems it is platform specific known issue.

Best Regards,


I’m getting same exception with Aspose.PDF. I want to know your issue is resolved or not. May be it help me to solve my issue.



We suggest you please upgrade to the latest version of Aspose.PDF for .NET i.e. 18.8 and see how it goes on your end?
