PDF to DOCX conversion is generating corrupt files in .NET


I am using the trial version of GroupDocs.Conversion to convert a PDF file to DOCX. However, when I try to open the output file using MSWord, I get the popup that the file seems to corrupt. Please note that I am able to recover the file, and it seems to be perfectly fine. But, for my application, I cannot afford to have a corrupt file generated. Furthermore, when I convert from PDF to Doc, the output file also has no issues. Please find a snapshot of my code below:-

private byte[] ConvertPDFToWordXGroupDoc(byte[] bytePDF)
byte[] bytWordX = null;

string testPagesPath = System.Web.HttpRuntime.AppDomainAppPath + “\TestPages\”;
Stream streamPDF = new MemoryStream(bytePDF);

GroupDocs.Conversion.License license = new GroupDocs.Conversion.License();

ConversionConfig conversionConfig = new ConversionConfig { StoragePath = testPagesPath + “GroupDocStorage”, CachePath = testPagesPath + “GroupDocCache”, OutputPath = “GroupDocOutput” };
conversionConfig.UseCache = false;
ConversionHandler conversionHandler = new ConversionHandler(conversionConfig);

var convertedDocxStream = conversionHandler.Convert(streamPDF, new WordsSaveOptions { ConvertFileType = WordsSaveOptions.WordsFileType.Docx });

using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream())
bytWordX = ms.ToArray();
catch (Exception e)
Hashtable ht = new Hashtable(2);
ht.Add(“bytePDF”, bytePDF);
MethodInfo objMethod = (MethodInfo)MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod();
GlobalExceptionHandler.customExceptionHandler(e, objMethod, ht, ErrorSeverityType.Normal);

return bytWordX;
