Hi Jamil;

In your last post all you posted was the function signature for a function called File which takes two parameters and some comments. If you look at the image below the File function has four parameters so not the correct function that you posted and I am looking for ALL the code in that function so that I can determine why you can not use another larger array.   Your code

I am unable to find any info on the DeviceManagementAPI method or ExportBackup method so can not verify what type of stream it is returning. I would suggest that you place a breakpoint on the line, stream.Close();, and verify what the variable data contains in it, bytes are integer values between 0 and 255, if it contains other values then that it is an issue?

How Do I update or download a new NOPI.dll which is support Excel 2010 ?

Have you done this, "I would suggest that you place a breakpoint on the line, stream.Close();, and verify what the variable data contains in it, bytes are integer values between 0 and 255, if it contains other values then that it is an issue?"?
