How Aspose.Cells for .Net SetLicense search for a license path?

Aspose.Cells for .NET does not look for license on specific path or in specific order. It looks for a license on the path you mentioned.

Suppose you mention this path C:\myFolder\License.lic then Aspose.Cells for .NET will look for license in the C:\myFolder.

Suppose you don’t mention the path in the set license. Then it will look for license in the current directory.

Please see the code below, in this code, I have not mentioned the complete path, now Aspose.Cells for .NET will look for it in the current directory. Please see its output


//If you will not mention the path Aspose.Cells for .NET will look for it

//in current directory

License lic = new License();


//Will print the path of current directory

System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("Aspose.Cells will look for \"License.lic\" on this path: " + Environment.CurrentDirectory);


Aspose.Cells will look for "License.lic" on this path: F:\Shak-Data-RW\Projects\AsposeProject\AsposeProject\bin\Debug

An additional note for Asp.NET application, suppose, if you have placed a license file in your virtual directory and your virtual directory is at this path F:\Shak-Data-RW\Projects\AsposeProject\AsposeWebSite\ and you have placed a license at this path F:\Shak-Data-RW\Projects\AsposeProject\AsposeWebSite\License.lic, then you will use the following code to access it.


string pathLicense = Server.MapPath("~") + "\\License.lic";

License lic = new License();
