RDLC Data Sources crashes VS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a bunch of rdlc reports that were originally created in VS 2005. When I try to design them in VS 2008 and click on Reports> Data Sources, the IDE thinks for a few seconds and then crashes. I've tried reinstalling Visual Studio. No luck. I've tried manually editing the data sources in the xml, but it never seems to work correctly. I'm using VS2008, SP1.

  • Hi Barry,

    I have not heard of a general upgrade problem like this before. Do you have an RDLC file you can send me that repro's the issue? I would like to try it out and see if there is something I can do to help you.

  • I had the exact same problem. I looked up the net but I couldn't find any solution.

    Eventually I had to manually remove data source from the rdlc file using a text editor.

    If anybody finds a solution please do tell!
