Evaluate Aspose.Font

You can easily download Aspose.Font for .NET product for evaluation purposes. Please refer to the  Aspose.Font for .NET download page to find out the latest version. The evaluation download is same as the purchased download. The evaluation version simply becomes licensed when you add a few lines of code to apply the license.

Evaluation Version Limitations

Evaluation version of Aspose.Font (without a license specified) provides full product functionality except some evaluation limitations. An evaluation supports working with the following fonts only.

If you want to try Aspose.Font out without evaluation limitations, request a 30 day temporary license. Please refer to How to get a Temporary License? for more information.

Applying a License

Once you are happy with your evaluation of Aspose.Font for .NET, buy a license at the Aspose website: Purchase Portal. Make yourself familiar with the different license types available. If you have any questions, contact the Aspose sales team and they’ll be happy to help you.

Every Aspose license carries a one-year subscription for free upgrades to any new versions or fixes that come out during this time. We provide free and unlimited technical support to both licensed and evaluation users.

The license is a plain text XML file that contains details such as the product name, number of licensed developers, subscription expiry date and so on. The file is digitally signed, so do not modify the file: even adding an extra line break to the file invalidates it.

When to Apply a License

Follow these simple rules:

Apply License using File or Stream Object

Use the License.SetLicense method to license the component. The easiest way to set a license is to put the license file in the same folder as the Aspose.Font.dll and specify the filename, without a path, as shown below.

3string dataDir = @"c:\temp\";
5License license = new License();
6license.SetLicense(dataDir + "Aspose.Diagram.lic");

Loading a License from a Stream Object

These code snippets initialize the license from stream.

1// For complete examples and data files, please go to
2// Set path of the license file, i.e. c:\temp\
3string dataDir = @"c:\temp\";
4// Load an existing Visio file in the stream
5FileStream LicStream = new FileStream(dataDir + "Aspose.Diagram.lic", FileMode.Open);
7License license = new License();
