"Index out of range" error converting Word to PDF


I'm currently evaluating .Words and .PDF.

I've successfully done several Word to PDF conversions using this code:


Document doc = new Document(values.DocumentName);

MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

doc.Save(ms, SaveFormat.FormatAsposePdf);

ms.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);

XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();


Pdf pdfDoc = new Pdf();

pdfDoc.IsImagesInXmlDeleteNeeded = true;

pdfDoc.BindXML(xmlDoc, null);

pdfDoc.Save("MyForm.pdf", Aspose.Pdf.SaveType.OpenInBrowser, HttpContext.Current.Response);


However, I just tried it with another (very simple) Word to PDF conversion and I got this error:

Index was outside the bounds of the array.

Any Idea what this might be?




Thank you for considering Aspose.

Please attach the Word document that can reproduce this error.


Thanks for considering Aspose.

I tested MyForm.doc, everything works well.

Aspose.Words v3.5.1.0 Aspose.Pdf v2.9.3.0

// New a Doc object.
Document doc = new Document("MyForm.doc");

// Save the doc in a xml fille that can be handled by Aspose.Pdf.
doc.Save("MyForm.xml", SaveFormat.FormatAsposePdf);

//New a pdf object.
Aspose.Pdf.Pdf pdf = new Aspose.Pdf.Pdf();

// Bind content from the named xml file.
pdf.BindXML("MyForm.xml", null);

//Save the document


Sorry! I didn’t realize a hotfix had been released. I downloaded the hotfix and the error went away. Thanks.
