.NET Framework 3.5 Supported by Aspose.Words DLL | SharePoint Project | Could Not Load File or Assembly


I have a SharePoint Project which is build on .net Framework 3.5.

I downloaded “Aspose.Words for .NET 16.3.0 (DLLs only)”.
But in the downloaded files I can find only two dlls for .net framework 3.5
  • net3.5_ClientProfile
  • net3.5_ClientProfile_AuthenticodeSigned
So, when I add one of this dll in SharePoint Project (it works with console application), it gives me error for "Could not load file or assesmbly…’.

I referred below post

Error -- Could not load file or assembly Aspose.Words

which says that we need to use Aspose.Words.dll for full .NET 3.5.

So, please suggest from where can I get Aspose.Words.dll for full .NET 3.5.


Hi Ankit,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please first remove old Aspose.Words completely from your development machine. Then remove the reference to this old Aspose.Words.dll from your project using Visual Studio. Also, delete associated files from your project’s bin folder if present. Then install Aspose.Words (16.3.0) via msi installer. Add reference to this new DLL (~\install-dir\Aspose\Aspose.Words for .NET\bin\net3.5_ClientProfile) in your project using Visual Studio and re-build it. Finally, re-publish your web application and copy the newly published website to your server. Hope, this helps.

Best regards,
