Document comparison API support for .NET core

We’ve been evaluating the Groupdocs.Comparison api and have only gotten it to work with .NET Framework.

When we try to use it in a dotnet core project, we get a warning message stating the package was restored .NETFramework,Version=v4.6.1 instead of NETCoreApp,Version=2.2. It will compile, but we get an Exception when calling the .Compare method.

The same code, with the same .docx files, works fine if we create a .NET Framework application.

Do you plan to support .NET Core at some point? If so, when?


Currently API doesn’t support .NET Core. However, we are looking into it. Your investigation ticket ID is COMPARISONNET-1951. As we have any further update, we’ll notify you.

is it something you plan to support eventually? if so, is there any time frame?

if not, what’s the recommended migration path for existing .NET Framework customers?



We are investigating this. You’ll be notified as we have any update.


.NET core support is added from version 19.11.
