I am using Syncfusion ver:
.NET Framework ver:3.5 WPF and VS2008-SP1

When i try to create the excel engine object like,
ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();

It throws an exception "The type initializer for 'Syncfusion.XlsIO.Implementation.ApplicationImpl' threw an exception"

The stack trace is this:
at Syncfusion.XlsIO.Implementation.ApplicationImpl..ctor()
at Syncfusion.XlsIO.ExcelEngine..ctor()
at ...

Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance,

Hi Dhana,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Could you please make sure that you have referenced Syncfusion.Compression.Base assembly to your application? Missing this assembly may also cause this exception.

The same error does also occur when using the 'Syncfusion.XlsIO.Mvc.dll' instead of the 'Syncfusion.XlsIO.Base.dll' in a non MVC environment (like commandline application).

So when building a commandline or windows applciation or windows service, make sure to reference the 'Syncfusion.XlsIO.Base.dll'.
