LEADTOOLS uses a specific codec or set of codecs (Leadtools.Codecs.???.dll) to load or save each supported format. Without the required codec(s), it cannot load or save the respective format.

Code property will be set to a
RasterExceptionCode = -9 ("Invalid File Format") or -16 ("Feature not Supported"). To fix exceptions with these codes, copy the necessary codecs to the application folder, so the codec assemblies can be loaded when necessary.
One method to automatically copy the required codec assemblies is to add them to the project as references with the
