Chart FX client server is not designed to run as part of a service with no

GUI, some windows API called from Chart FX client-server makes use of

GDI.ESE and USER.EXE in a way not consistent with a service such as IIS.

Chart FX Internet edition server component is designed and tested to work in

a server environment.

Why do you want to use Client-Server instead of IE ?

Because the guys I'm working for are on a tight budget.  I used chart FX on

the web two or three years ago, though i don't remember what version or

build it was. It couldn't have been IE because IE was not released at that

point. Any idea what I must have been using? These guys don't need high

end client interaction, just some simple PNG files. They do ned more

formatting control than most shareware provides, hence I suggested chartFX

to them, but IE is out of their price range.

You may have been using it as a Client component.

Chart FX Client-Server can't produce PNG file or any other image without a

visible container, in other words you will not be able to generate a PNG

image using Chart FX client server from an ASP. That is a fact. The only way

this could be done is by building a container component that will use Chart

FX DLL (not the ActiveX) to produce bitmaps images and then transform them

to PNG (using your own code or a third-party library). But still, your

server performance will be severely affected.

This are just the technical facts, I'm not trying to convince you to buy

Chart FX IE but Chart FX Client-Server will just not work they way you want.
