Chart Control 4.0 and IIS 7 Problem

I’ve decided to add the new ASP.NET 4.0 Chart Control to one of my web apps. Everything worked fine during the testing on my local machine, but once I published it to remote IIS 7.0 server I’ve got the following error:

HTTP Error 500.23 – Internal Server Error
An ASP.NET setting has been detected that does not apply in Integrated managed pipeline mode.

So the simple solution that worked for me was just to remove the following entry from web.config <system.web> section:

<add path="ChartImg.axd" verb="GET,HEAD,POST" type="System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.ChartHttpHandler,
System.Web.DataVisualization, Version=, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"

Also make sure that <system.webServer> section has the following:

<remove name="ChartImageHandler" />
<add name="ChartImageHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="GET,HEAD,POST"
path="ChartImg.axd" type="System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.ChartHttpHandler,
System.Web.DataVisualization, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />

Hello Friends..

   <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration=”false”/>
      <remove name=”ChartImageHandler” />
      <add name=”ChartImageHandler” preCondition=”integratedMode” verb=”GET,HEAD,POST”
          path=”ChartImg.axd” type=”System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.ChartHttpHandler, System.Web.DataVisualization, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″ />
      <add path=”ChartImg.axd”
          type=”System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.ChartHttpHandler, System.Web.DataVisualization, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″
           validate=”false” />

    Cool, it worked!
    But I had to create the c:/TempImageFiles/ dir to work.

    How do I use another dir?

    I have the same problem, and I removed it, and after it wroked. BUT after closing VS and opening it again, web.config contains this line again. What am I supposed to do?

  4. Victor says:

    thanks for the solution. however, it works on IIS but it doesn’t work on debug mode anymore. any idea for that?

    • Asif says:

      yes once you remove ChartImg.axd tag from httpHandlers it wont work on IIS. just delete chart from page and from designer replace on page will resovle issue on debug.

      When you finally deploy on IIS then do as explain above.

      • Victor says:

        Thanks for your reply. However, I found a solution to make it work on both IIS and debug mode.


      • Victor says:
