    I can test my application locally just fine. When I publish it to the webserver I get a configuration . My web server is Win Server 2008 R2 standard and running IIS7.5. I am not sure if this a limitation of the trial version or there is more configuring I need to do.<h2><i>Configuration Error</i> </h2><font face="Arial, Helvetica, Geneva, SunSans-Regular, sans-serif "><b>Description:

    You need to deploy the CalcEngine and Excel assemblies to the project bin folder on the web server.   Those assemblies are currently installed to the GAC, so they are loaded from there on the development machine and not copied local to the project bin folder.  The same problem happens with the PDF assembly (if you use it).

    We are addressing this issue for the next maintenance release, so this should not be a problem in future releases.

    Please make sure that the version of the assembly is same as that the version of Spread used in your project.

    You just need to copy them to the bin folder for your site on the web server, along with the other dlls.  The version does need to be correct, so be sure to copy the correct versions.

    It sounds like Spread cannot find the client script files in the server to deploy to the client.  Please refer to the readme.chm for detailed deployment information (in Redistribution topic, click "Spread for ASP.NET Redistribution").  It is the part about copying the fp_client folder to IIS that you need to do to fix it.
