In IIS, you need to right-click iSystem and click Convert to Application option (it should not be only a virtual directory).

Also are you sure FileUltimate is used in /iSystem and not the root site /?

iSystem  in iis is already application not virtual directory  and i am sure FileUltimate   is in isystem not in the root
and in my local it work good in my online server not work

Oh if it's ASP.NET Core, GleamTech gets the application directory from environment variable ASPNETCORE_APPL_PATH which should be set by ASP.NET Core module. If it's empty, is used. Strange that it's empty in your case, maybe you didn't have proper ASP.NET Core server installation?

Open Program.cs and try adding the highlighted line:

public static IHostBuilder CreateHostBuilder(string[] args) =>
        .ConfigureWebHostDefaults(webBuilder =>
            Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable("ASPNETCORE_APPL_PATH", webBuilder.GetSetting("APPL_PATH"));

If it still doesn't work, open Startup.cs and add the highlighted line before UseGleamTech call (hardcode the app path /iSystem):

Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable("ASPNETCORE_APPL_PATH", "/iSystem");

No, that's the only thing you need to install. Maybe with 3.1, they changed the environment variable I will recheck.

FYI, this is now fixed with FileUltimate Version 7.7.0 - September 15, 2020:

  - Fixed: In some cases, on ASP.NET Core, resources like js and css were not loading (HTTP 404).
    Fixed UseGleamTech and WebActivationMiddleware to find correct ApplicationVirtualPath:
    ASPNETCORE_APPL_PATH environment variable is only present if you are using the OutOfProcess hosting model. If you are using InProcess, the information is only present on the HttpRequest.PathBase property.
