Hi all,
When I run my code in vs2013, I can upload fine, the files get stored in my upload location. But when I run it in vs2012 my code, it says /fileupload.ashx cannot be found. Any idea what this problem can be from?

I did some investigation and it seems I was running visual studio development server on vs2012 and iis express on 2013. SO to elaborate how to get it to work on visual studio development server?

If you run the VS Dev Web Server, you to move the handler settings in the web.config from the system/webserver section into the system/web section.

In the documentation, not quite 1/2 way down the page, there is a section on the web.config settings that explains in detail.

Thanks, let me know if you need anything else.
