Files having character in their names give file not found error


Files having ‘£’ (Pound currency symbol) character in their names not loading. Viewer gives “File not found” error where as we cross checked that file exists.

Attaching a sample file to reproduce the issue. Kindly resolve the issue.


Hello Vijendra,

Thank you for your inquiry.

We have checked your file example and it rendered well for us (we have tested it on our GroupDocs.Viewer for.NET 2.18.0 version). Also we have added "£" this symbol to the file name and we still can view it, as you can see on this screenshot.

Could you please share with us additional information :

- which type of project you use(MVC or WebForms) ;
- share with us your Viewer widget code.

We will wait your details and will be glad to help you.


Best regards,
Evgen Efimov
