Supported Microsoft Project Versions


All Aspose .NET components require Full Trust permission to be set. The reason for this is that Aspose .NET components need to access registry settings, system files other than a virtual directory for certain operations like parsing fonts. Moreover, Aspose .NET Components are based on core .NET system classes that also require Full Trust permission set in many cases.

Internet Service Providers hosting multiple applications from different companies mostly enforce Medium Trust security level. In the case of .NET 2.0, such security level applies the following constraints:

For the reasons specified above, Aspose .NET components cannot be used on servers granting permission set other than Full Trust.
