ImgWriter fails to stream an image to the browser in the ASP.NET environment.

ImgWriter is dependent on the intrinsic ASP objects and requires that ASP compatibility is set when used in ASP.NET.

The .NET Runtime gives the following error message:

Operation failed. 

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. 
Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. 

Exception Details: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Operation failed

In order to stream the image to the browser, ImgWriter needs to utilize to the Response object of ASP. This requires that in ASP.NET scripts, the AspCompat attribute of the Page directive needs to be set to "true".

<%@Page aspcompat=true >
