New User Question

I have purchased and downloaded and installed the Apose.slides 5.4 product.

In the instructions it says to right click and add a new reference and the aspose.slides will appear in the .NET tab.

This is not the case. I have rebooted computer since doing this.

When I manually go and add the reference using the browse option, it puts the Aspose.Slides.dll in a Bin folder, not a references folder.

And when I try and run the “hello world” tutorial, it errors asking if I am missing an assembly or reference.

What am I doing wrong?

Also, when I try and run the Apsose.Slide.WF.Template sample program, I get the following error:

Can’t assign string which contains paragraph break character

Hi Julie,

Please share the project code with us so that we may investigate and help you further. You need to import the references of Aspose.Slides like other components. Using following import references will help you.

using Aspose.Slides;

//using Aspose.Slides.Pptx.Charts;

using Aspose.Slides.Pptx;

//using Aspose.Slides.Pptx.Animation;

using Aspose.Slides.Export;

Thanks and Regards,
