Not able to read the word doc from the config folder in my app running in unix environment

Hi Support Team,
I am facing a strange issue while loading the word doc using the below code.

InputStream inputStream = new FileInputStream("/homes/document.doc");

the file location is in remote unix box.while iam passing the above inputStream in
the document constructor mentioned below.

Document asposeDoc = new Document(inputStream, null, LoadFormat.DOC, null);

Iam getting the following exception
com.aspose.words.FileCorruptedException : The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded.
The same code works in the windows environment. I tried creating application in my desktop which is running in windows OS, which is running fine without any exception.
I am not sure why it only fails in unix environemt. Does Aspose support loading of word doc into unix box or it is the problem with the unix box which is corrupting only the word doc which iam trying to uplaod in to the loaction metioned above in code.
I tried loading the HTML file from unix env, it works,. why its only failing with word doc in unix environement?
Please provide me the solution at the earliest. Your help is higghly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Hi Support Team,
Thanks for ur quick reponse. The version of aspose iam using is 2.6.1. due to some restricitions in my organization i couldn’t attach the word doc iam using, but i can tell u it works fine on windows env, it only fails when iam trying to upload the word doc in to my application which is running remotely on unix server. We are using F-Secure SSH file transfer to proceed with development work to drop files in to the application. In the same way iam also uploading this word doc in to config folder and trying to access it in code. But it says file corrupted exception.
And iam sure it is not specific to that word doc iam using, any word doc i upload it fails while loading it in document constructor.
Please suggest what we can do.


Thank you for additional information. I cannot reproduce the problem on my side using the latest version of Aspose.Words for Java (4.0.2). You can download this version from here:

Hi Andrey,

I got the issue, actually we are using the class loader to get the resource, the API which we are using will return object and from that i am getting url.openStream(), which returns me inputstream, Some How this API is permanently corrupting the word doc in the config path. So if Iam using fileinputstream it is working fine.

Thanks for your support . Its higlhy appreciated.
