    Hi All, 

    I am configuring REDIS (installed on linux) as custom session state on IIS 10, but unsuccessful. It keeps giving below error.

    Parser Error Message: The custom session state store provider 'Custom_Microsoft.Web.Redis.RedisSessionStateProvider' is not found.

    Also, I can't install Microsoft.Web.RedisSessionStateProvider via nugget on windows server 2016. After Install-Package Microsoft.Web.RedisSessionStateProvider command execution on powershell I receive "Install-Package : No match was found for the specified search criteria and package name 'Microsoft.Web.RedisSessionStateProvider'". All environment are on-promise. So I can't find official answer, is it supported configuration or REDIS works only in Azure.

    Guys pls help.

    You should deploy the dll with your web site binaries in the same bin folder (copy local when you compile the project).
