Trying to set license with net core 2

We recently upgraded our licence and are trying to use it on net core. We were using it on asp net 4+ before.

When I first tried to set the licence, it was erroring because it did not like 1252 encoding as this isn’t supported in net core by default.

Trying the methods suggested here.

Now when I try and set the license using the stream method, or file method or embedded resource, they all fail with this error.

System.Reflection.AmbiguousMatchException: ‘Ambiguous match found.’

Can you give me some advice how to get this to work?

I am afraid, your license file worked fine on our end when using Aspose.Words for .NET 18.7. We have prepared a simple console application (see (753.2 KB)) to test your license. Before running the application, please copy your license file in “~\DotNetCoreApp\bin\Debug\netcoreapp2.0\” folder.
