    I am trying to use the social share on a page, but the Captcha will not render for the "share via Email"
    The site is using the state server "process" for session state and there is caching on the server. 

    I have configured the web.conf but I'm not sure what else to try. Is there a way to turn it off and obviously stop its validation as well?

    Many Thanks for any help.

    Hi Gary,

    There isn't a way to disable the captcha validation, because it is an important security feature that prevents spam.

    Regarding the exact problem - is only the image gray in your case, or the entire captcha does not render? I am asking this because in a webfarm/garden scenario the captcha often renders a gray image because the in process session state is not shared among all instances. More information about this issue is available here:

    If this does not solve your situation could you provide more details on the problem, for example a simple page that shows a captcha that does not render so we can investigate this case?
