.NET Total Embeded license in 'Produce Single file' application


C# code

Aspose.Cells.License license = new();

is not working for ‘Embedded resource’ lic file in console application published as ‘Produce Single File’ in .NET 6, generating 'Cannot find license ‘Aspose.Total.NET.lic’.
This is not convenient since the lic file has to be provided separately and in the ‘open’ view, opposite to be hidden in the main exe.


Could you please create a sample standalone VS.NET project, zip the project and post us, we will check it soon.

PS. please exclude Aspose.Cells.Dll and your license file in the zipped archive of the project prior attaching.

Hi Amjad,

Thank you for your reply !

Here is a minimal project, - just 2 lines of code.

I also included publish profile and a screenshot of publish properties.
Aspose.Licence.NET.lic (not included) is defined as Embedded Resources.

It works fine in Visual Studio, but fails when published as a single file.
