1. Install DLL via Nuget

Install-Package Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Web

2. Add items in bold to the relevant sections in web.config

<system.web>
<httpModules>
     <add name="ApplicationInsightsWebTracking" type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Web.ApplicationInsightsHttpModule, Microsoft.AI.Web" />
   </httpModules>

<system.webServer>
   <modules>
     <remove name="TelemetryCorrelationHttpModule"/>
     <add name="TelemetryCorrelationHttpModule"
       type="Microsoft.AspNet.TelemetryCorrelation.TelemetryCorrelationHttpModule, Microsoft.AspNet.TelemetryCorrelation"
       preCondition="integratedMode,managedHandler"/>
     < remove name="ApplicationInsightsWebTracking"/>
     <add name="ApplicationInsightsWebTracking" type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Web.ApplicationInsightsHttpModule, Microsoft.AI.Web"
        preCondition="managedHandler"/>
   </modules>

<system.diagnostics>
  <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="0">
    <listeners>
      <add name="myAppInsightsListener" type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.TraceListener.ApplicationInsightsTraceListener, Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.TraceListener" />
    </listeners>
  </trace>
< /system.diagnostics>

3. Create an ApplicationInsights.config file in /
