Parser error when trying to access demos


I've just updated to aspose v3.4 and when I try to access the demo files using IE to access http://localhost/Aspose.Word.Demos/Default.aspx I get the following error ( I get a similar error when trying to access http://localhost/Aspose.Word.Demos.VisualBasic/Default.aspx )

I suspect that it it probably some config problem on my server. Could anyone tell me what may be causing this error. Is this covered in the documentation somewhere? If so, please direct me it.

Thank you,

You need to compile the demo projects before using them.


Can you direct me to some documentation that will instruct how to
compile the demo scripts? I didn’t think that visual basic
scripts needed to be compiled.

Thank you,



You need to compile demo projects which were installed on your computer (usually in C:\Program Files\Aspose\Aspose.Word\Demos directory) using Visual Studio.NET (VS.NET 2003 is preferrable).
