I need to upload large files (150 mb) in using the ASP fileupload control.  The site runs on the 2.0 framework.  I increased the defualt size from 4mb but I keep getting an out of memory exception error.

Can you check the memory limit on the application pool settings.

there might be a hard limit.

also check the application log for event .


Best of Luck.

Here the therror I get back I think it is in the webservice but not sure.  If so any ideas how to get past this?

That is very obvious the max request size , which in your case should be 120 + megs ( in bytes)

but honestly that is very large for a post to a web service .

I think you might have some design changes to make.



If you want to share your config file snippets , please inidicate which config file you are referring to.

Best of luck.

Hers is the setting for the file size in my web.config.  I need to handle a file that is 150mb.
<system.webServer>
    <security>
      <requestFiltering>
        <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="153600000"></requestLimits>
      </requestFiltering>
    </security>
	</system.webServer>

You need twice as much  of the file size .
307200000


<system.webServer>
    <security>
      <requestFiltering>
        <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="307200000"></requestLimits>
      </requestFiltering>
    </security>
        </system.webServer>

because it is sent as a xml serialized file( no matter what is your file )

for example

myfile.txt

content
"Hello World"

<xml File > 
  <Name  = xyz.txt > </Name>
  <Content MIME 8 bit or other .. = d6f7dasf9das87f6dasuafagfdahgfyewiqurytqryewqryueqt7283946321948263149816423984761239486328 VERY LONG STRING > </Content>
</xml file>



similar to mail attachments if you will.

Is maxAllowedContentLength in bytes, or kb?  Still not sure I have a good understanding of why the size needs to double.

I tried upping maxAllowedContentLength="307200000" like you suggested and still get this error back.

Are you sure that is the correct web.config for the service. and it is not a part of an application ?

This is the web.config of the app not the webservice

can you post a screen shot of the Application and virtual folders  
also the URL of the web service in relation to the application .


An easier way is to search the folder for all web.config files and see if you have more than one.
