Type Initialization Exception is thrown on opening presentation (C# .NET)

Hi all,

I receive a System Type Initialization Exception, “The type initializer for ‘Gdip’ threw an exception.”, when trying to run the sample code for creating a powerpoint presentation at https://docs.aspose.com/display/slidesnet/Creating+and+Opening. The exception occurs in the line: presentation.Save(“NewPresentation_out.pptx”, Aspose.Slides.Export.SaveFormat.Pptx); regardless of the format selected.

I’m running v18.6
