    I have added Async file upload control in page and set display as none. like
    <telerik:RadAsyncUpload ID="fuImport" runat="server" HttpHandlerUrl="~/CustomHandler.ashx"
             OnClientFileUploaded="onClientFileUploaded"  PersistConfiguration="true"
             MultipleFileSelection="Disabled" OnClientFileSelected="CheckExtension"
             CssClass="jImport" OnClientAdded="onClientAdded" Style="display: none">
    I have disabled embeded scripts in web.config
    <add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedScripts" value="false"/>
    for this I Have used custom handler HttpHandlerUrl="~/CustomHandler.ashx".

    Now I have opened file dialog from menu client click(ImportData()  function ) instead of clicking on select button of file upload. Script are as below.
    var $fileInput;
    function onClientAdded(sender, args) {               
        if (sender.get_id() != undefined && sender.get_id() == 'fuImport') {                   
            //get file control instance from telerik upload control.
            $fileInput = $(".jImport").find(".ruFileInput");                   
    //check selected file is valid or not.
    function CheckExtension(radUpload, eventArgs) {
        var input = eventArgs.get_fileInputField();               
        var fileExtension = input.value.substr(input.value.length - 3, 3);
        if (fileExtension != "xml") {
            alert(input.value + " does not have a valid extension.");
    function ImportData()
        if ($fileInput != null) {
            //open dialog box for file selection.
    function onClientFileUploaded(sender, args) {
        //check file is uploaded properly then perform import process.
        if (sender.getUploadedFiles().length > 0) {
            $(".jImport").css('display', 'none');
    Now when we call ImportData function then file dialog is opened to select the file, after selecting file, upload process is not processing file for upload in IE, when I see this in IE Developer tool Network tab it's below url is executed multiple time
    changed in every request.

    If I test same in FF and Chrome then it's worked perfect. Also If I set Display : block to file upload control and then upload files clicking on select button of file upload in IE then it's worked perfect.

    Note : My site is hosted in Shared hosting server so I am not able to add handler in web.config.

    Kindly Help me to resolve this issue.

    Thanks in Advance.

    This is a known limitation of IE. You can read more about this in the following forum topic:
