However, to view the file generated by the component, you need to have at least Microsoft Office Viewer installed on your machine.

b) Installation:

Aspose component can be set up on your machine in two ways: using full MSI installer or just the single dll. You can download it at the Aspose download page.

Using MSI Installer

  1. Visit Aspose.Cells,Words,Slides etc download page and download the Aspose.Cells.msi installer that contains the latest version of the component.
  2. Run the downloaded file and follow the installer instructions.
  3. To use Aspose.Cells,Words,Diagram etc for .NET in your project, provide a reference to it as described in the topics i.e.., "Referencing Aspose.Cells component from a .NET project" and "Referencing Aspose.Cells Grid Controls from a .NET project".





Using DLL Only

  1. After you have installed Aspose.Cells,Words,Slides,Email etc for .NET on your machine, you can get the component's dll files (i.e. Aspose.Cells.dll, Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop and Aspose.Cells.GridWeb) form your ${installation_Path} folder e.g "\Aspose\Aspose.Cells for .NET\Bin\net2.0".
  2. Moreover, you may just copy the i.e. Aspose.Cells.dll file from your development machine to your production environment or desired location to avoid the complete intallation process (sometimes, the installation process does not suit you on a server).
  3. To use component in your project, provide a reference to it as described in the topics i.e.., "Referencing Aspose.Cells component from a .NET project" and "Referencing Aspose.Cells Grid Controls from a .NET project".
