Server Farm- can't find license

Hi, we just moved out ASP.Net 3.5 site to a web farm, the site files are on a fileserver share, and two IIS servers are load balanced.

I have the following code in the global.asax and the .lic file is in the bin folder along with aspose.dll:

protected override void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)


base.Application_Start(sender, e);

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



I get the following error:

[FileNotFoundException: Cannot find license 'Aspose.Cells.lic'.]

Thanks for your posting.

You need to give the path of your Bin folder. Suppose, your Bin folder is at this location C:\Web\Bin, then your code should look like this.


If you want to programmatically get the path of your bin folder. Then use Server.MapPath() method.
