Users cannot upload exhibits larger than 4MB (Upload fails)



1. Open the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\AccessData\MAP and open the web.config file"

2. Change the line 


<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />  (should be line 162)




<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" maxRequestLength="256000" />


(**note, the maxRequestLength takes values in KB.  The value above sets it to 250MB)


3. Save web.config, then perform an iisreset on the web server.



Default web request length max size is 4MB.  Reported in Summation 5.0.0, fixed in subsequent releases.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\AccessData\MAP does not exist in the new versions?

    Hey Alex,
    I installed mine with the default options, and it's here. C:\Program Files\AccessData\MAP
