Imagehandler not working on server

Hi
I have created an Imagehandler (ashx)  "class ImageHandler : IHttpHandler {" that I use in my website.
I use this to display jpeg images on my site. It Works fine when I run the Project from VisualStudio, but when I deploy it to the web server it stops working. I have tried the solution that normaly comes up when I Google this problem:
Add the handler to the handlers section under system.webserver:

"
<add name="ImageHandler_ashx" path="*.ashx" verb="*" type="ImageHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" />

    </handlers>
  </system.webServer>
"
Its Windows server 2008R2 and IIS 7.5
But it doesnt work, I'm i missing something here?

Is the ImageHandler class part of an assembly that is deployed in the website's bin directory?
It would be better to add the assembly name as well when you mention the type. It should appear as "classname, assemblyname".

Also, make sure that *.ashx does not already have a mapping handler, configured in IIS.

Hi the image handler is not part of an Assembly, it's a separate file that get published.
I tried it in the app_code folder, but now its at the root folder of the website

I didnt understand when you said it is not part of an assembly, The dll file needs to be placed in the website's bin folder, along with other such dll files of the website.

Hi
The handler is a .ashx file. and when I publish the web Project it stays as   a .ASHX file. It doesnt get compiled into a .dll.

I think I found the solution:
I didnt have a codebehind file, but I have added one now that I put i the App_code folder, and then the "publish" made an dll of that folder. Now it Works.
