Error rendering after deploying to IIS on Windows Server 2008 R2 using ASP.Net Core

  • Installed nuget packages local, binary, and aspnetcore.

    Added this code to ConfigureServices in Statup.cs:

                var localWebServerReportingService = new LocalReporting()
                    .Configure(cfg => cfg

    Here is the code to render the file:

                        var viewHtml = await JsReportMvcService.RenderViewToStringAsync(HttpContext, RouteData, "InvoicePdf/InvoicePdf", invoiceGenerationModel);
                        var report = await JsReportMvcService.RenderAsync(new RenderRequest
                            Template = new Template
                                Recipe = Recipe.ChromePdf,
                                Engine = Engine.None,
                                Content = viewHtml,
                                Chrome = new Chrome
                                    Format = "Letter",
                                    MarginTop = "0.5in",
                                    MarginBottom = "0.5in",
                                    MarginLeft = "0.5in",
                                    MarginRight = "0.5in"
                        var memoryStream = new MemoryStream();
                        await report.Content.CopyToAsync(memoryStream);
                        memoryStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
                        return memoryStream;
                    catch (Exception e)
                        _logger.LogError("Error generating pdf file!");
                        return null;

    On my development machine it works fine. On IIS I am getting this error:

    "Unable to render template. Timeout Error: pdf generation not completed after 30000ms"

    Any ideas?

  • Note that I also tried adding:

    .RunInDirectory(Path.Combine(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory(), "jsreport"))

    to the first code block and that didn't help.
