EPiServer and SignalR



I tried following this guide:


But when I got to the part where it said I should install Content Collaboration and Live Monitor add-ons, I could not find them in my EPiServer-interface under Add-ons. They're simply not listed, and not under beta either.

So I instead I decided to add an OWIN Startup class, because I really don't need the add-ons, I just want SignalR to work.

But unfortunately for me, this does not work either:


The startup class does not fire.

I also installed the Microsoft.Owin.Host.SystemWeb package in case that was the issue.

Here are my assemblt bindings:

Also added this:


But to no avail.

Some code:

[assembly: OwinStartup(typeof(EPiServerSite1.Startup))]
namespace EPiServerSite1{

    public class Startup    {

        public void Configuration(IAppBuilder app)






Does anybody know why I can't get OWIN and SignalR up and running?

Latest EPiServer installation (Alloy MVC) under VS2015.

Try to follow this:


You must install the signalR nuget package and that package might give you a startup file.

Also, dubbel check that you are using framework 4.5 or higher, otherwise it will not work

Yes, I have done all of this, as mentioned in my first post. The SignalR-nuget package is indeed installed and SignalR is running fine under non-EPiServer solutions. The Startup class in my first post does not fire.

To answer my own question: Clearing out the ASP.NET Temporary Files made the problem go away ;)

Thanks Henrik :)
