    I set the appsetting for the temp folder of the AsynchUpload control in my machine.config file.  It does not seem to work there.  By cutting/pasting into my web.config, the setting seems to be picked up.  So, I know the setting is valid.   It looks like the snippet below.

     <add key="Telerik.AsyncUpload.TemporaryFolder" value="\\SomeDevServer\e$\SomeFolder\temp\" />

    While I can leave it in web.config, we find that "unfortunate."  All our file system settings are set in machine.config!  That way we can copy our website files across dev/test/production servers, including web.config without modification.  Now we will have to make custom edits as deploy to different servers.

    Any reason why the appsetting can't be inherited from the machine.config value?

    Hi Margo,

    It is possible to set the RadAsyncUpload TemporaryFolder from machine.config. Please check the sample settings I tried which works perfectly at my end.

    XML : machine.config
        <add key="Telerik.AsyncUpload.TemporaryFolder" value="E:\TempUpload\"/>

    Please note that you add these settings after closing the <configSections> in the machine.config. Also check whether these settings are not being overridden from your application.

    Shinu --

    Thanks for the reply.  This is my mistake (but something you can add to your arsenal in case others trip over it!)... I have a 64 bit development machine; yet when running on localhost, it seems IIS Express is running in 32 bit mode.  So, of course, that changes the location of the machine.config.

    You have to look in




    That's tripped me up in the past, but I just now remembered it.
