also with a .doc file the exception happened, but i can’t upload a .doc in this forum:
I converted id to docx, with docx this one works fine.word3.docx (130.1 KB)

Thanks for your help


Please try switching to SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux.NoDependencies 2.80.2 as a workaround for now. See this issue for more details.


I tried switching to SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux.NoDependencies 2.80.2.

GroupDocs.Convertion 21.11.0 depends on SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux.NoDependencies 2.80.3. Because of that, I also had to switch to GroupDocs.Convertion 21.10.0.

Since then, the application didn’t crash but also since then, GroupDocs.Conversion didn’t convert the pictures of a word file when I try to convert from a word to PDF.
If I convert these word files in GroupDocs.Convertion 21.11.0 with SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux.NoDependencies 2.80.3 they convert fine.

Switching to SkiaSharp.NativeAssets.Linux.NoDependencies 2.80.2 is not a workaround for me.
