chartfx getHtmltag returning a jpg instead of object


Recommended Posts

Hello, so we've migrated from an old server to a windows 2012.... 

There is an old asp file that generates a graph... it has

<%=Chart1.GetHtmlTag(Session("GraphWidth"), Session("GraphHeight"), , "Chart1") %>

In the new server, that generates the following code which shows a static graf, with a button that doesn't do anything.

<img src="/cfxtemp/CFT0803_1019443B9.jpg" width="600" height="420">

While in the old server, it the same code generates 

<OBJECT CLASSID="CLSID:21F49842-BFA9-11d2-A89C-00104B62BDDA"
WIDTH="600" HEIGHT="420" ID="Chart1"
<PARAM NAME="LICENSE" VALUE="/installer/cfxlicense/CfxIE.lic">
<PARAM NAME="DATAPATH" VALUE="/cfxtemp/CFT0804_0922572B.chw">

No error...just different output... any ideas whats wrong or missing?

If you know for sure your clients all use Internet Explorer I would recommend setting the third parameter in the GetHtmlTag call to "ActiveX"

The detection process use some extra files that could be different in both servers, note that we use the UserAgent sent by the browser so it is also possible that newer browsers are not being detected (in both servers) as capable of rendering ActiveX controls.
