    I am working on a project and recently updated my VS from 2015 to 2017. My existing reports execute well but when I try to open the RDLC file in Visual Studio to modify, I get an XML version of it. I need to open it in Design mode to make some modifications in it. I tried right click, open with but did not find any Report Designer in there to open it. All I found is a list of XML and HTML openers. Please help me how to modify this. Either download something or do any modification.

    Please help me in this.

    Regards,

    Deepak

    Hi acmedeepak,

    I try to check the issue and I find that this issue is related with Visual Studio Forum.

    I also contact Visual Studio Support team and confirm it.

    I cannot move this thread directly to Visual Studio Forum.

    so I suggest you to close this thread and post a new thread in Visual Studio Forum.

    below is the link for the Visual Studio Forum.

    MSDN Visual Studio Forum

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Regards

    Deepak
