    Spread for ASP.NET Redistribution
    In This Topic

    Please review this information concerning redistribution of Spread for ASP.NET with your application.

    Server Requirements

    You must deploy to a Microsoft Internet Information server.

    Server Files

    Place the assemblies that come with Spread for ASP.NET in either your server's global assembly cache (GAC) or in your application directory's \bin folder under the wwwroot directory on your server.

    Place the following assemblies on your server:

    Place the fp_client folder (installed originally in \Program Files\Common Files\FarPoint Technologies) and its subfolders provided with Spread for ASP.NET under your server's wwwroot directory, or, if you wish to put it elsewhere, set up a virtual directory in IIS Manager to point to the location of that folder's contents.

    The fp_client folder can also be placed in the web application directory. The following code would need to be added to the web config file. For example:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>






    <add key="fp_client" value="fp_client" />



    Be aware that Spread for ASP.NET creates a Web server control that serves up HTML pages for clients and it also puts HTC files in a directory on the client machine for client-side scripting capability.

    Permission Requirements

    If you use the Spread control on medium trust web sites, you need to add SerializationFormatter and Reflection permissions to the machine config file, web_mediumtrust.config. The SecurityPermission needs the UnmanagedCode and SerializationFormatter flags. For example:

    <IPermission class="SecurityPermission" version="1" Flags="Assertion, Execution, ControlThread, ControlPrincipal, RemotingConfiguration, UnmanagedCode, SerializationFormatter"/>

    <IPermission class="ReflectionPermission" version="1" Unrestricted="true" Flags="ReflectionPermissionFlag.MemberAccess"/>
