Re: Support - Is Microsoft Office 365 document supported by Aspose.Words .Net


I am in same situation.

Is the update available for Office 365?



Hi Paul,

Thanks for your inquiry. Aspose.Words does not support Office 365 or Word 365. However, this feature is present in our future plans. Unfortunately, there is no update on it.

We apologize for your inconvenience.


Would it support Office 2016 then?

I am not sure what wouldn’t work with my license?

It wouldn’t compile in my VS2015?

I have a Developer OEM license from 2015 for Aspose.Words for .NET and Aspose.Cell for .NET.



Hi Paul,

Thanks for your inquiry. We have already logged a feature request as WORDSNET-12458 to support Office 2016 for Aspose.Words in our issue tracking. We will keep you updated on this feature via this forum thread.

In the first phase, opening and saving of Office 2016 documents will be supported. More features will be added gradually as we receive more requests.

Please use latest version of Aspose.Words for .NET 17.2.0 and check following article about applying license.

Applying a License

If you are using Aspose.Words and Aspose.Cells, please apply the license as shown below.

Aspose.Words.License lic = new Aspose.Words.License();

Aspose.Cells.License licCell = new Aspose.Cells.License();

Hi Paul,

Full support for MS Word 2016 is a very large umbrella term that needs to be clarified e.g. round-tripping document is our basic support for MS Word 2016 (and all MS Word versions) which is in place. There are other things to be checked as well e.g. drawing/graphics support. So if “official” announcement is a big expectation awaited, I am afraid, there are extra features added in MS Word 2016 that are not yet available in public API of Aspose.Words. However, as far as file formats are concerned, please check what supported formats are listed in the following page:

Supported load formats by Aspose.Words

You can simply create a document using MS Word 2016 or Office 365 (web) and load/save it using Aspose.Words for .NET. If you find no errors/unexpected behaviors in Aspose.Words for .NET generated document (round-trip) then you can safely say yes Aspose.Words for .NET supports this Word editor etc. Hope, this helps.
