How do I add the Words Component to a windows form?

I am new to Aspose and the Words component. How do I add the component to a windows form in C# or any other language?

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your interest in Aspose.Words.

Aspose.Words is not a component or control. It is a class library, designed for opening, creation and manipulation of Word documents from code much like XML DOM does for XML. It also supports conversions to/from HTML, plain text and to PDF format.

Please check the following article to find out why using Aspose.Words over Word automation:

To be able to work with the library from your .NET project just add the reference to Aspose.Words library to your project References list.

To get a fast start please check the source code demo projects which are part of evaluation package.

Best Regards,
