Wrong Word to PDF conversion + unable to run in 64-bit only IIS process

Dear support


We have some problems with Aspose.Words:

1. Wrong conversion of custom metadata object (checkbox) to PDF. (It is filled by site workflow from SharePoint) WF puts symbol ☒ to make checkbox checked and symbol ☐ to uncheck it. Word saves file as PDF properly. But Aspose seems can’t recognize it. And we have some problem with headers convertion. For more details see attached file.
2. The most critical problem - unable to run in 64 bit mode. We’re running SharePoint on IIS with 64 bit mode only. If we compile SharePoint app with Aspose.Words with “Any CPU” option, it throws error at runtime that assembly could not be loaded. Meanwhile if we switch IIS settings to support 32 bit too, SharePoint will crash as IIS tries to load some 32 bit SP libraries that breaks current configuration. So we must run our app in 64bit mode only. It means that we need not “Any CPU” libraries, we need 64 bit only libraries. We’ve tried several variants with using .net 2.0 too.

Can we solve it somehow?
Thanks.

Aspose.Words rendering on a server will typically not work in an ASP.NET application configured to run under the Medium Trust level because it prohibits access to registry and limits access to the file system. Please refer to the following article:
