I have installed the new asp:chart control on my machine and have built an app that uses it. All is working well so far. Now I want to deploy my app in a hosted environment. If my hosting provider doesn't have the asp:chart control installed can I get my app to work by putting the .dll in the bin folder? (I guess I am asking if it has to be found in the Gac)

Accepted Answer

Apart from deploying the assembly to the bin folder, you also need to configure a folder with write permission to temporarily store the chart images.

In web.config under

<appSettings>
    <add key="ChartImageHandler" value="storage=file;timeout=20;dir=D:\TEMPDUMP\;"/>
