PPT Rendering Options not listed as an option after MSI install (delay signed?)

PPT Rendering Options not listed as an option after MSI install.

I followed and verified the 5 steps listed in the HOWTO: Install Manually link.

Even after restarting the service, the ASPOSE export options are not listed when viewing a report in Report Manager.

Strong name can't be verified error for ASPSOE assembly in SSRS log.

Hi David,

Thanks for your interest in Aspose.Slides.

This thread has also been linked with the issue, so that you may be automatically notified, once the issue is resolved.

Hi Mudassir,

Should I interpret this to mean that ASPOSE Slides for SQL Server 2005 is not available on the operating system Windows Server 2003 R2? This is the scenario which is not working in my case.

Additionally, I see the same missing PPT rendering options after installing ASPOSE Slides for SQL Server 2005 on Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit.

Can you recommend a Slides for RS product and server OS combination that will be easier to establish in a production environment?

Basically, ILDASM shows the assembly manifest contents descibring the Aspose assembly being delay signed and lacks the proper Aspose.snk key pair. I believe this is why the assembly's strong name cannot be verified when the Aspose assembly is being loaded at runtime.

Did ASPOSE's naming authority apply a strong name to the 3.5.0 assembly before publishing to the web? It appears the SSRS 2005 assembly was not associated with the authentic private key.

C:\Users\David\Desktop\Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices350\Bin\SSRS2005\Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.dll is a delay-signed or test-signed assembly

Dear Dave,

Can you please share the Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.dll file that you are using and which is creating issues? We need to investigate the issue to some further details as OS version doesn't matter for Aspose.Slides for RS installation.

Thanks and Regards,

The source for this msi was the ASPOSE Downloads site on 8/27.
