License for new version

A couple of months ago I purchased a license (1 year subscription - still valid) for Aspose.Words for Reporting Services (for use in Local Reports - Report viewer 2008).
The version at the time was 2.3 and now I see there’s a new version (3.0.1).
I tried downloading the new version and replacing the old DLL with the new one while leaving the license file in the same location.
When I try generating a Word export from the Report viewer the generated document has the “created with a trial version …”
How can I use the old license with the new version?

Thanks for your request. The license should work without any issues is it is not expired. Please make sure that all is done as described here:
Also, since you are using Aspose.Words for Reporting Services in local mode, please check the following:

  • Make sure your call to SetLicense gets executed. Step through in the debugger.
  • Make sure your code does not catch and silence an exception thrown by Aspose.Words licensing code. For example, Aspose.Words will throw if it cannot find the license.

Best regards.

In the previous version the DLL and the LIC file were in the same directory. So I never used a call to SetLicense
It’s the same with this version. Is a call to SetLicense required now?


Thanks for your request. Are you developing an application with Microsoft Report Viewer in local mode? If so please see “Licensing Application Development” section in the following article:
And make sure you do the same to set license.
Best regards.
