NeatUpload – Simple setup 2 (without GAC)

NeatUpload Manual available here.

In this posting I use NeatUpload without installing to the Global Assembly Cache. I did this as I thought initially that by installing into the GAC would mean I didnot have to add a project reference but apparently that is not the case. So now I copy the dll into the project/website and reference from there.

Etract the current neatupload zip file to any location.

Copy the dll


into your \<applicationRoot>\bin folder.

Now in VS go website\add reference. Browse to the dll and select.

Now copy the folder ….\NeatUpload-<version>\dotnet\app\NeatUpload into the root of your application. i.e. <applicationRoot>\NeatUpload

In the application root web.config the following needs to be added.

IN <configuration><configSections> add
<section name="neatUpload" type="Brettle.Web.NeatUpload.ConfigSectionHandler,Brettle.Web.NeatUpload"
                 allowLocation="true" />

IN <configuration> add

<neatUpload xmlns="" useHttpModule="true" />

The above two entries are really a holder at this stage, please review the manual for further options, but netupload can be configured by modifing this tag <neatUpload >.

IN <system.web><httpModules> add

<add name="UploadHttpModule" type="Brettle.Web.NeatUpload.UploadHttpModule,Brettle.Web.NeatUpload" />

IN <system.webServer><modules> add

<add name="UploadHttpModule" type="Brettle.Web.NeatUpload.UploadHttpModule,Brettle.Web.NeatUpload" preCondition="managedHandler"/>

With the above changes I was then able to create an aspx page with the following tags, this would then compile and allow me to add multiple files.

<%@ Register TagPrefix="Upload" Namespace="Brettle.Web.NeatUpload" Assembly="Brettle.Web.NeatUpload" %>

<Upload:MultiFile id="multiFileId" runat="server" UseFlashIfAvailable="true"/>
