I am trying to insert the attached WMF file into a word document using DOCIO. I am able to insert an EMF file but get an error with the WMF file. The error I get is "An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in Syncfusion.DocIO.Base.dll
Additional information: Ivalid metafile format". Can you let me know how i can insert a wmf? In addition, i have version "syncfusionessentialstudiosetup" installed. Thanks.
