NullReferenceException when binding to HTML

I am using Aspose.PDF 6.9 in an ASP.NET web application to convert a web page to a PDF file. The application uses a WebRequest object to obtain the HTML, then I use BindHTML to create the PDF. The code works the first time it runs, but all subsquent attempts throw a NullReferenceException when I use the BindHTML method. If I stop the application and start it again, the code works the first time then throws NullReferenceExceptions.

The error I receive is below.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /><o:p></o:p>

Description:
An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about
the error and where it originated in the code.
