Unable to instantiate workbook object using filepath paremeter

Aspose fails here :
fullPathOfFile = /u02/downloads/template.xlsx";
try{
Workbook wb = new Workbook(fullPathOfFile)
}catch (Exception e){…}

It seems to spend some time executing this line of code, but then it immediately jumps out of try-catch. There is no exception thrown… and wb remains null.

I checked the filepath…the file is there.

what could be wrong?

Thank you! Just fyi - I am facing this issue with java api. Not sure if that matters.
