InValidCastException when saving a Word document to pdf


When I tried converting a document to pdf, InvalidCasteException (“Unable to cast object of type ' ’ to type ' '.”) occurs. Code:

Document convertedDocument = new Document(@“test”);

From the stacktrace it seems to come from convertedDocument.UpdatePageLayout(); so I tried this method and I saw the same exception.

I have attached the Word test document, could you please have a look on this?
