Unsupported file format: Word 2 and earlier Binary Documents and Templates

Hi, I have a word file from 20 years ago, and its file type is “Word 2 and earlier Binary Documents and Templates” (filetype.png (3.3 KB)).
I get this exception:
com.aspose.words.UnsupportedFileFormatException: Unsupported file format: Unknown at com.aspose.words.zzYFS.zzWuo(Unknown Source) at com.aspose.words.Document.zzXou(Unknown Source) at com.aspose.words.Document.zzWuo(Unknown Source) at com.aspose.words.Document.(Unknown Source) at
when new com.aspose.words.Document.

Does Aspose support this this file type? or what can I do to read this kind of files?

@Rich_Yu Thank you for additional information. I have logged the issue as WORDSNET-24364. Our developer will investigate the file and provide you more information.

@Rich_Yu We have completed analyzing the issue. Document is Word 2.0 file format document. Unfortunately, we’re not going to support this format in Aspose.Words. So the issue is closed as Won't Fix.
