@Steven.Thelen,

Thanks for providing us stacktrace and details.

I guess your issue might be related to privileges, so you should check it and sort it out in your environment. Please note Aspose .NET components (including Aspose.Cells) are recommended to run with Full Trust permission set, see the document for your reference. This is because Aspose .NET component sometimes need to access registry settings and files located in places other than the virtual directory e.g. for reading fonts etc. Furthermore, Aspose .NET components are based on core .NET system classes, some of which also require Full Trust permission to run in some cases. You may evaluate permissions on your server.

Thank you.

The file share has full permissions and nothing is view Read-only. Could this issue be caused if I’m running .NET on a Virtual Machine? What about only have Office 2016 installed on this cpu… any known issues with Aspose and Excel 2016?

I only have Excel 2016… would I need older versions of Excel?

@Steven.Thelen,

Well, Aspose.Cells is an independent .NET component created in managed C#. Aspose.Cells does not need MS Office/Excel to be installed either on the server or on the client side, neither it uses any MS Office or automation or relevant APIs, see the document for your reference:


However, if you need to view the generated Excel file by Aspose.Cells, you may use MS Excel or any other spreadsheet viewer application.

Could you give me details, which Aspose.Cells assembly (Aspose.Cells.Dll) from which folder (@ your installation directory) you are using in your VS.NET project? Your may try to use your Aspose.Cells assembly (Aspose.Cells v8.7.x) from net4.0/net2.0 folder. Also, did you try using our latest version/fix: Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.7 (please use Aspose.Cells.Dll from net4.0 folder). Moreover, did you try using the project in some other machine (e.g some other pc, or developer machine, etc.)?

Furthermore, please take help and see the documents/threads and try to sort your issue accordingly (if possible):


https://forums.asp.net/t/1088939.aspx?Could+not+load+file+or+assembly+or+one+of+its+dependencies+Access+is+denied+

If you still find the issue, kindly create a simple sample project (runnable), zip it and post us here to show the issue, we will execute your VS.NET project to evaluate it.

Thank you.

Hi, have a new laptop and I’m trying to get C# .NET application locally running in VS 2013 (that does work for other developers).

I did try copying in Aspose.Cells.dll from the following folder “C:\Program Files (x86)\Aspose\Aspose.Cells for .NET\Bin\net4.0” and I still get the following error. I’ve installed Aspose.Cells for .NET 8.7.1.0… and I’m using license file “Aspose.Cells.lic” with the following info…

@Steven.Thelen,

Did you try the solutions (as we told you in my previous reply) mentioned in the documents/threads:

  1. Issue - Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. Access is denied - I
  2. Issue - Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. Access is denied - II

Also, could you provide us a simple sample project (runnable) to reproduce the issue on our end, you may zip it prior attaching here. We will run your project in our environment to investigate your issue.

Thank you.
