    I am new to the Telerik tools and am working with the Q1 2014 release of the ASP.Net AJAX tools.  I am trying to understand whether or not I need to set the RadCompression in the Web.config file.

    I see in the documentation on RadCompression that it is not needed for IIS 7.5 because the Dynamic Compression of IIS 7.5 will result in double compression of the response.  Is this also true for IIS 8 and IIS 8.5?  I don't see anything in the forums or documentation for these newer versions of IIS 8 and 8.5.  Any information would be helpful.

    Hello Charlie,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Indeed the IIS 8 and IIS 8.5 have built in compression module. If it is enabled you do not need to enable RadCompression into the web.config file, because the result will be double compression of the response. I will make sure that the documentation article will be updated with this information.

    If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us again.
