Free version

Download

To install GemBox.Document Free 2.7, enter your e-mail, download setup, and execute the .msi file.

Limitations

GemBox.Document Free delivers the same performance and set of features as the Professional version. However, the Free version is limited to 20 paragraphs. This limitation is enforced during reading or writing files.

The ComponentInfo.FreeLimitReached event allows you to control what happens when your application reaches the free version limit. You can use this event to continue using the assembly in Trial mode for performance testing or to stop further reading/writing.
