How to use ASPOSE Word DLL and LIC file in CRM 2011 Plugin or Workflow

I have designed a CRM 2011 plugin and referenced Aspose.dll and Licence file and it works fine in my development machine. But when I deployed the plugin in the CRM server I am getting the following error


Microsoft CRM Error Report:Error Description:ERROR - RetrieveDocument Could not load file or assembly ‘Aspose.Words, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=716fcc553a201e56’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


I am getting the same error even though I copied the DLL and LIC files in the CRM 2011\server\bin\assembly folder and restarted the IIS and CRM related services

What is the best way to use your ASPOSE DLL with the LIC file in CRM 2011 Plugin (or Workflow)?



Hello Sam,

Thanks for your inquiry.

For plugins/workflows we need to copy the dll in CRMWeb/bin/ directory.

Copying of DLL in CRM Installation directory is not recomended by Microsoft.
For this you register the Aspose.Words DLL in GAC on CRM server.

You will find some helpful meterial on how to use Aspose.Words with CRM on this link: https://blog.aspose.com/2015/01/27/aspose-.net-automerge-for-dynamics-crm-20132015-is-now-available
