Aspose for Umbraco:

  Umbraco is open source content management system and Aspose is file format experts. Aspose for Umbraco macros allow you to import/export Words/Pdf contents by using Aspose products(i.e. words,cells,pdf etc)easily and in faster way.

System Requirement


Umbraco 7.x.x

  • IIS 7+ (II6 may still work but is untested)
  • SQL CE, SQL Server 2008 (Express and higher)
  • ASP.NET 4.5 Full-Trust
  • Ability to set file permissions to include create/read/write (or better) for the user that "owns" the Application Pool for your site (NETWORK SERVICE, typically)
  • It support all latest browsers.

Installation Steps:


  • Install Umbraco with Microsoft Webmatrix

Follow these simple steps to be up and running with WebMatrix quickly and easily. The benefit of using WebMatrix is that it is super simple to get up and running.

Download and launch webmatrix

  1. Go to and download WebMatrix for Free
  2. Once installed launch WebMatrix and from the four options shown - choose the option labelled Site From Web Gallery

    Web Matrix - Choose Site From Web Gallery

  3. In the search box in the top right hand corner, type Umbraco

  4. From the results select the item marked Umbraco CMS

    Web Matrix - Search for Umbraco CMS

  5. In the Site Name box give your site an appropriate name and click Next

  6. Accept the license in the next step by clicking I Accept

    The list of items may be more than just Umbraco as shown in the screenshot. This is because WebMatrix uses the Web Platform installer behind the scenes to install Umbraco and will also download any other software that is required in order for the website to run.

  7. WebMatrix will download the required files to run Umbraco, once done you will be prompted with a confirmation message.

  8. Once completed you need to launch the website from WebMatrix.

    1. Click the Sites section in the lower left hand corner
    2. Then click on the URL such as http://localhost:22830
      Port number may be different as it is random
    3. The Web installer for Umbraco will now launch inside your default browser.

Umbraco Web Installer

This section continues from where we left off but covers the installation and configuration of Umbraco inside your web browser, when you run Umbraco for the first time.

  1. You will see the welcome screen. After reading through the page click Lets get started!

    Web Installer - Lets Get Started

  2. On the next screen you are presented with four options for configuring the database to be used by Umbraco. Choose the option marked I want to use SQL CE 4 and click Install. This is the quickest and easiest option to get started with Umbraco, especially for small sites, and uses a file stored on disk as the database.

    If you need to migrate your database from SQL CE to SQL Server you can do it at a later point.

    Web Installer - Database choice

  3. You will be shown the progress bar during the database installation, once done click Next

    Web Installer - Database Install

  4. On the next screen you need to fill in the form to create a user so you can access the back office of Umbraco. Once completed click Create user

    Web Installer - Create User

  5. From this next step you can decide if you want to install a starter kit. A starter kit installs an example site for you which allows you to pull it apart and learn how Umbraco works.

  6. After deciding whether to skip or install a starter kit you are now finished!

  7. Now click the Set up your new website to be logged into the Umbraco back-office.

    Web Installer - Install Complete

  8. Celebrate - you're all done!


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 download page and download the .msi installer of required Aspose Product that contains the latest version of the component.

2. Run the downloaded file and follow the installer instructions.

3. To use Aspose.Words 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".
