SecurityException ASPOSE.CELLs ASP.NET

Hi,
I’ve got a web application (asp.net) which uses aspose.cells DLL to generate and modify excel files. The problem I get is a SecurityException when I try to access the login page.
Any idea?
Here is the error:

Server Error in ‘/’ Application.

        <h2> <i>Security Exception</i> </h2></span>

Hi,


This exception is not related to Aspose.Cells API. I think the issue may be security permission sets for the IO operation, I think you are not allowed to access the file system completely. To confirm this exception, you may try to run the code to open the file without involving Aspose.Cells, e.g…, FileStream fs = File.Open(…)

You need to modify the proper security settings for your requirements. You may try to assign Administrative role for your web application.

For more elaboration on the said issue, please read below the technical articles from Microsoft
