Using Chilkat in ASP.NET using Only a Text Editor (w/out Visual Studio)

To get a bare-bones ASP.NET page up and running with Chilkat, all you need to do is create a .aspx source file with a text editor, and drop the ChilkatDotNet2.dll (for 2.0 Framework) or the ChilkatDotNet.dll (for 1.* Framework) in the bin directory, which should be located in the same directory as the .aspx file.

Here’s a "Hello World" .aspx that instantiates a Chilkat.Zip object and displays the Version property (helloWorld.aspx):

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Chilkat" %>
<title>ASP.NET Hello World</title>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
	Chilkat.Zip zip = new Chilkat.Zip();

For clarification, the directory structure is like this:

  --- HelloWorld.aspx
  --- bin
      --- ChilkatDotNet2.dll
