Root Element Missing from license


I’ve seen this error on the forum a few times but the solution is very specific to the user.

We have a license for aspose words. We have just received our license. The version i am using is (i got this from properties of the dll in vss2012).

I have the license as a resource which i use:
Object obj = QualityControl.Properties.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject(“Aspose_Words_4”);
Stream license = new MemoryStream((byte[])obj);

and then pass the stream to another libary to produce the document. But

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

Throws an exception. “Root element is missing.”. If i turn the byte[] to a string i can see the license details.
