Unable to load full Document when running as Windows Service


I have a 22 page MS Word document that I am attempting to load into an Aspose.Words Document. When running as an ASP.NET web application, it loads the full document as expected.

However, when running as a Windows Service, it only loads 8 pages of the document. No exception is thrown. Attached is a sample project and the Word document.

Any suggestions?



Edit: I am using version of the Aspose.Words package.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your inquiry. This is because of limitations of Aspose.Words when used in evaluation mode. The problem does not occur when used after applying the license. So, please apply the license as described below:

Best regards,

Thanks for the quick response!

Yes, this was the issue. My web app was applying the license but my Windows service was not. (My mistake). It would be helpful if there was an exception or warning thrown if trying to process a large document with the eval version :wink:
