ASP Persist Software AspUpload v3.1.0.2

AspUploadĀ® is a server component that allows your web application to capture files uploaded with a browser in as little as 2 lines of ASP script. With AspUpload, files up to 4 GB can be uploaded while only consuming a tiny amount of RAM on the server. The files can be uploaded to disk, memory or the database of your choice. The user can monitor upload progress and time-remaining information via a built-in HTML-based progress bar. AspUpload’s remarkable robustness and extensive feature set has made it the upload solution of choice for tens of thousands of web sites around the world.

1.1 What is AspUpload?

AspUpload is a COM+ component which enables an ASP application to capture, save and process files uploaded to the web server with a browser. The files are selected for uploading via an HTML POST form using the tag.
With AspUpload, you can add file upload functionality to your Web application in as little as 2 lines of ASP script. In addition to uploading, AspUpload offers a wide range of file management functions, including secure downloading, saving files in the database, permission and attribute management, image size extraction, file encryption, etc.

1.2 What’s New in AspUpload 3.0
An HTML-based progress bar. You no longer need to rely on ActiveX controls or Java applets to offer an accurate and detailed progress indicator to your users.
Support for large files. You can now upload files up to 2 GB in size.
Improved performance. AspUpload 3.0 uses a different approach in processing uploaded files which consumes much less CPU and memory resources of your Web server.
Unicode support. The new version handles Unicode characters in text fields and file names.
Registration key system. AspUpload 3.0 now uses registration keys, just like all other Persits components. Instead of two separate versions (eval and full) there is a single version of the component downloadable from the Web site. Applying a registration key to an eval version turns it into the full version.
A single Save method. The old methods Save, SaveToMemory and SaveEncrypted are all combined into a single method, Save, with multiple optional parameters. The old methods are still supported for backwards compatibility.
New object properties such as Version, RegKey, TotalBytes, TotalSeconds, File.LastModified, etc.
Full backwards compatibility. No code changes are necessary when integrating the new version into an existing application.

1.5 Installation Procedure
To install AspUpload, download and run the setup application aspupload.exe. The aspupload.exe setup will install both the AspUpload component (aspupload.dll) and all the documentation into a directory on your hard drive that you specify during installation. Typically, it is c:\Program Files\Persits Software\AspUpload, but it can be any other directory.
The install routine will automatically register the component DLL on your machine. During installation, your IIS-related services will be shut down and restarted.

If you need to move the AspUpload component to another server, it is sufficient to copy the file aspupload.dll (located under the \Bin subdirectory of the installation) to the other machine and register it there using the regsvr32 command-line utility. You may copy the file aspupload.dll to any folder on the second server’s hard drive, e.g. c:\winnt\system32. To register the dll, run the MS DOS prompt and type the command

c:>regsvr32 c:\winnt\system32\aspupload.dll

You should specify another path if necessary. If this server is already running an older version of AspUpload, you must remove it from memory prior to registering a newer version by shutting down all IIS services. To do that, type the following command at your DOS prompt:

c:>net stop iisadmin /y

To bring the WWW service back up, type the command

c:>net start w3svc

Other IIS services (such as FTP, SMTP, NNTP, Site Server, etc) can be restarted from the Services control panel.

The downloadable version of AspUpload will be fully functional for 30 days after installation and require a registration key afterwards. Once an AspUpload registration key is purchased, it should be installed in the system registry on the server (instructions will be sent to you via email along with the key).

Alternatively, a registration key can be specified in your ASP code via the Upload.RegKey property.
