How To Configuring your .NET application to use the ASP.NET Session State Store Provider

In this post I will show you how to configure the ASP.NET session state store provider, you must update the web.config file for the ASP.NET application to include the ASP.NET session state store provider and its configuration.

Before you begin

  • Configure a data grid to store ASP.NET HTTP session state.
  • You must have the catalog server host and port.


Update the web.config file of your ASP.NET application with settings for the ASP.NET session state store provider. You must update or add the text in bold in the following example to the web.config file

                        IBM.WebSphere.Caching, Version=, Culture=neutral,

wxsPropertyFile (optional)Specifies the fully qualified properties file that the provider uses when it connects to the data grid with the Connect API. If this attribute is not specified or is an empty string, the provider looks for the file in the current runtime directory of the web application process. If the provider does not find the file in the runtime directory, it looks for the file in the net_client_home\config directory.wxsHostAndPort (optional)Specifies a comma-separated list of catalog server host and port pairs to which the session state store provider connects when it accesses the data grid. The format follows:

<host name or host ip address>:<tcp port>[,<host name or host ip address>:<tcp port>]

If no value is specified, localhost:2809 is used.

wxsGridName (optional)

Specifies the name of the data grid to which the ASP.NET session store provider connects. If you created a data grid for ASP.NET session states, specify the data grid name that you created. If you do not specify a value, the provider connects to the session data grid.

wxsMapName (optional)

Specifies the map to which the provider connects. If you do not specify a value, the provider connects to the ASPNET.SessionState map.

  • Restart the target web application. The web application must restart so that the provider can be loaded by IIS. In most cases, after the web.config file is modified and current HTTP request processing is complete, the restart occurs automatically.


ASP.NET session state from your ASP.NET application is stored in the data grid.

ASP.NET Hosting - :: How to Fix ASP.NET Browser Detection Error in Internet Explorer

clock June 20, 2016 20:50 by author Armend

Internet Explorer 11 has a bug which prevents ASP.NET applications from running properly. Your users will view broken layout and JavaScript errors, which occurs due to a bug in the browser detection under .NET Framework 4.

You can easily track down the browser detection problem by using F12 development tool available with Internet Explorer, which modifies the user-agent string sent by the browser. In order to work with the tool, you need to press F12, click the Emulation button located at the bottom left and choosing Internet Explorer 9 from the dropdown list. You will be able to see whether the page renders properly immediately after page refresh.

In order to fix the above issue, you need to install .NET Framework 4.5 on the server, which has built-in solution for this problem. However, if you are running Windows 2003 Server then you will have to install patches provided by Microsoft to update browser detection problem in older versions of .NET Framework. Alternatively, you can directly update the application by opening the App_Browsers folder and adding a .browser file with correct definitions as shown below.

  <browser id="IE11" parentID="Mozilla">
      <userAgent match="Trident/(?'layoutVersion'[7-9]|0*[1-9]\d+)(\.\d+)?;(.*;)?\s*rv:(?'version'(?'major'\d+)(\.

(?'minor'\d+)))" />
      <userAgent nonMatch="IEMobile" />
      <userAgent match="Trident/(?'layoutVersion'\d+)" />
      <capability name="browser"              value="IE" />
      <capability name="layoutEngine"         value="Trident" />
      <capability name="layoutEngineVersion"  value="${layoutVersion}" />
      <capability name="extra"                value="${extra}" />
      <capability name="isColor"              value="true" />
      <capability name="letters"              value="${letters}" />
      <capability name="majorversion"         value="${major}" />
      <capability name="minorversion"         value="${minor}" />
      <capability name="screenBitDepth"       value="8" />
      <capability name="type"                 value="IE${major}" />
      <capability name="version"              value="${version}" />
  <!-- Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11,0) like Gecko -->
  <browser id="IE110" parentID="IE11">
      <capability name="majorversion" match="11" />
      <capability name="ecmascriptversion"    value="3.0" />
      <capability name="jscriptversion"       value="5.6" />
      <capability name="javascript"           value="true" />
      <capability name="javascriptversion"    value="1.5" />
      <capability name="msdomversion"         value="${majorversion}.${minorversion}" />
      <capability name="w3cdomversion"        value="1.0" />
      <capability name="ExchangeOmaSupported" value="true" />
