I spent 3 hours trying to get this thing working. The documentation doesnt help as theres nothing mentioned for non Asp.net core applications. All the stackoverflow posts are for things that are deprecated. Can someone provide me a good way to register and use Automapper in my controller? 

I tried a bunch of different things but couldnt understand how to do it. 

Thanks.

Non .NET Core applications? Do you have a ServiceCollection thingy to do services.AddAutoMapper?

ASP.NET Core/.NET Core/SDK-style projects are all I use these days.

It's .Net 4.8 project. I just have the global.asax file. I did add this to my App_start function in Global.asax.cs file

var config = new MapperConfiguration(cfg => cfg.CreateMap<Order, OrderDto>());
var mapper = new Mapper(config); 

 but then what? How do I get  the reference in the controller is what I am confused about

Well, however you want really. It's no different than how you get access to any other object in your application in your controller. Are you using dependency injection or not, that sort thing. You can make a static field or whatever. It's up to you.
