Do I need a server component?
Is Smart Image Processor pure code or do I need a server component?
You need a server component installed for the Smart Image Processor. It supports the following very famous server components that are most probably already installed at your server:
If you don't have any of those installed - we even have included our own server component that you can install.
Also even if you have your site in regular ASP - if ASP.NET is installed on the same server - you don't need to have any aditional server component installed! The Smart Image Processor is so Smart that it uses the installed ASP.NET from within you asp page.
The Server Check
To test what server component is installed we have created a test file just for this. Click here to download the file.
Put the two files in a directory on your server and open the detect.asp page in a browser. It will tell you if any server components are installed and what they are.
Note: For Smart Image processor 2 you need to follow this procedure
