Protect Workbook ProtectionType.Windows

Dear Aspose Support,

please use following code to repoduce this issue:

Aspose.Cells.Workbook wb = new Workbook();
wb.Protect(ProtectionType.Windows, “”);

The result:

Attachment: NoWindowProtection.PNG

It seems that ProtectionType.Windows has no impact on the workbook.

If I use an excel macro on a new file like following:

Sub test()
ActiveWorkbook.Protect Windows:=True
End Sub

The result (as expected):

Attachement: WindowProtection.PNG

Best regards
