Deploying AcuSensor for ASP .NET

First, you need to download the AcuSensor agent for your Target.

The AcuSensor agent will need to be deployed to your web application. This section describes how to deploy AcuSensor to an ASP.NET (including .NET core) web application.

  1. Install Prerequisites on the server hosting the website: The AcuSensor installer application requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 or higher.
  2. Copy the AcuSensor installation files to the server hosting the .NET website.

Once the sensor has been installed, close the confirmation window and also the AcuSensor manager.
