Description: http://images03.interactivewebs.com/Portals/67/PivotRendered-Optimised.jpg

We have released an update of our popular Microsoft Pivot DotNetNuke Module.

Mine your DotNetNuke user accounts to spot trends in your accounts and signup history. Microsoft "Pivot" allows you to organize and display data like never before.

The new technology recently released by Microsoft Labs is allowing the visualization of data that would otherwise be difficult to explore.

Take a look at the Ted Talk Video below to understand this technology, and imagine how you could use it with your DotNetNuke membership data.

There is nothing else that can sort and arrange data like Microsoft Pivot!

This module is exciting as it allows you to easily launch your profile data as a pivot within minutes.

How do I get the pivot server application to run on IIS 6

This is an extract from our DNN Pivot Module manual.
Special Requirements IIS 6 (Windows 2000, 2003 Server)

If you are running II6 and wish to access the Microsoft Pivot Labs technology, you will need to enable some special configurations. To do this:

1. Login to your web server and start IIS

2. Browse to your Web Site or Virtual Directory for the website in question and Rick Click selecting Properties.

3. Select the Home Directory Tab / Configuration

4. On the Mappings Tab, select Add

5. The following data depends on what type of server you are running. 64 bit vs 32 bit, and if you have .net 4 installed or not. The only thing that changes is the path for the .dll file.

Add the following data: 64 Bit server with .Net 4 installed

– Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll
Extension: .cxml
Limit to: GET
Script engine: checked
Verify that file exists: unchecked

this gives you something like this above. Click OK and repeat the process for the following extensions:

– Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll
Extension: .dzc
Limit to: GET
Script engine: checked
Verify that file exists: unchecked

– Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll

Extension: .dzi
Limit to: GET
Script engine: checked
Verify that file exists: unchecked

– Executable: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll

Extension: .jpg
Limit to: GET
Script engine: checked
Verify that file exists: unchecked

Add the following data: 34 Bit server without .Net 4 installed

Not that the location of the four extensions described above will change, depending on your server status. As an example of the change for a 32 bit server without .Net 4 installed the location would change

From

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\

To

c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\

So the location of the first file in the example above would be:

c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll
still giving a setup that looks the same but with a different path

You can browse to your servers .net path (C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework) to work out the location of the aspnet_isapi.dll file.
