I am writing to you about a problem we encountered in working with MSO Word document using the Aspose Words for Java library (v21.10). Specifically, when we try to load a DOC document an exception is thrown - java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate Word Document. This behavior is not present when working with the DOCX version of the same file.
I am enclosing the zip file with test code, as well as the source files.
In the hope that together we will quickly overcome the problem!
