Cannot start the conversion job because it does not contain any files.

I tried processing a library with 60+ files and all files converted but two. Now when I try to convert the two docs that did not convert with the large batch I am getting the following error in the log:

Unexpected System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot start the conversion job because it does not contain any files.

I cannot get these last two files to convert to PDF.

Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

I saw a post on the internet that seems related, but before I try to apply this fix to my situation, I would like feedback from the developer as to why this issue has occurred.

Thanks!

P.S. I just discovered that the two files that did not convert were Excel files. I am guessing that is the reason they won't convert to PDF file.

This solution only works for doc and docx file types. Check more under Home tab.
