Is System.Drawing used on Aspose family?


My company is Aspose customer.

As we are using Aspose components (Cells, Pfd, Slides, Word) on some windows services, I need to know if Aspose does use System.Drawing component in the underneath.

I especially need to know for Aspose.Pdf component. Version of Aspose.Pdf we are using is

Thank you for your response.


Yes, Aspose APIs use System.Drawing but we will gradually replace it with our Aspose.Imaging API. As far as Aspose.Pdf is concerned, it will not depend on System.Drawing till the end of this years.

Best Regards,

Thank you Muhammad


We need the same functioanlity to create Excel files on a windows service.
I’ve just checked the latest version of Aspose.Imaging, and it still has a reference to System.Drawing.

Question: Is it save to use Aspose.Imaging in a windows service process?


I have requested our product team to share feedback regarding dependence of Aspose.Imaging on System.Drawing and will get back to you ASAP.


I have received feedback from our product team. Yes. Aspose.Imaging still have referencing to System.Drawing.

Does this mean i cannot use Aspose.Imaging in a windows service process?


Our product team has tested code that runs as windows service and uses System.Drawing. So, there is no conflict.
