"Web-service is not listening"


I am testing PfViewer and have encountered a problem - when I deploy my app to docker container to be run on GCP Cloud Run, I get the message: "Web-service is not listening.." Same app runs OK on local host. I've seen multiple similar posts, but nothing seems to help. I have also followed and used sample that you provide here:


and on localhost it runs very well, but once I upload it to Cloud Run, I get the same error.

What could be the reason for it?

Hi Chinnamunia ,

Not sure, if I did it right, but I got something like this:

"The type initializer for 'Syncfusion.EJ2.PdfViewer.PdfiumNative' threw an exception."

Does this make any sense? Maybe I can share with you web link so you can get all the details you need?
