i am not clear with the explaination given by you,Please explain step by step instruction what i have to follow for this.

I am confused what i have to do with this.I don't know what is PSS and is it neccessary to disable these services.

Please explain what i have to do with this PSS and what tag i have to add in ChartFx.web.config for my desired result.

I am explaining what i have already tried:-

1)I have created a config file named:-"ChartFX.WebForms.config"

2)then this file i have included in Bin folder.

3)after that in Configuration file(i.e. ChartFX.WebForms.config), i have put an absolute tag

I am giving you my config file full description:-

<?xml version="1.0"?><!--

Note: As an alternative to hand editing this file you can use the

web admin tool to configure settings for your application. Use

the Website->Asp.Net Configuration option in Visual Studio.

A full list of settings and comments can be found in

machine.config.comments usually located in










Set compilation debug="true" to insert debugging

symbols into the compiled page. Because this

affects performance, set this value to true only

during development.



compilation debug="false" />


The <authentication> section enables configuration

of the security authentication mode used by

ASP.NET to identify an incoming user.



authentication mode="Windows" />


The <customErrors> section enables configuration

of what to do if/when an unhandled error occurs

during the execution of a request. Specifically,

it enables developers to configure html error pages

to be displayed in place of a error stack trace.

<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="GenericErrorPage.htm">

<error statusCode="403" redirect="NoAccess.htm" />

<error statusCode="404" redirect="FileNotFound.htm" />














These are the lines i have put after read your help,but nothing happens,

as happening earlier temporary file are stored in "chartfx\temp" folder. not in my

"<absolute>d:\rekha\temp</absolute>" path.

Please suggest me the right direction where i have to move.

I think these articles explain everything you need. You need to read through.

I don't understand this XML you posted. looks like an cross between a Web-App config file and a chart fx config file. These are not to be merged. What you need is a ChartFX.WebForms.config containing ONLY the following:




Relative>url for this path</Relative>



To understand what PSS is please read the following KB article:

Q7621004. The Chart FX PSS Service in a nutshell

This article explains how the Chart FX PSS Service works and how it can be configured.

If you want to disable the PSS service (which I don't recommend) please read the following KB article:

Q7621010. Disabling the PSS Service

This article explains how to appropriately disable PSS.

 Notice the the <DefaultHandler> tag is a sibbling of <Relative> and <Absolute>
