    But I created another website using visaul studio in my local machine and then used report viewer to disaply the same report. Its in server mode same as earlier. This one can be viewed without any trouble.


    I'm not familiar with ASP.NET thing. Can anyone help me to resolve this one?

All replies

  • Your error says "InvalidConfigFileTypeException", so it's probably something missing from your web.config in the existing app.


    Compare the two web app's web.config files and you will probably see what is missing.


    I am going to guess that c:\Dev Environment\Website\Applications\ORA\PDCRD.aspx has a line like this at the top:

    Code Snippet


    <%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"  Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>




    ... and that your web.config is missing a line like this in the httpHandlers section:


    Code Snippet


       <add path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" verb="*" type="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" validate="false"/>




    ... or something similar.
