The first step in deploying your application is to package the required ImageGear Runtime components.

ImageGear provides three different options to package the required files:


If your application requires Office, you will also need to package the OfficeCore dependencies. You should include all Office components and the LibreOffice instance manager needed to use Office features using DPW utility.

In order to use ImageGear.Formats.Office namespace, two conditions must be met:

  1. OfficeCore dependencies need to be present on the target machine.
  2. ImageGear needs to know the location of OfficeCore.

There are several possibilities to set up the OfficeCore resources correctly:

If you want to run the 32-bit IG.NET application on the 64-bit machine, then you need to change the registry path to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Accusoft\ImageGear\dotNet24\OfficeCoreDir.

The OfficeCore dependencies directory should contain following components:

It is required that every component should have the same bitness as ImageGear24.Formats.Office.dll (i.e., use 32-bit component executables for the x86 .NET target and 64-bit for the x64 .NET target).
