Report data sources gone RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using VS2008 and have a strange problem with report data sources. If I bring up the report data sources dialog, all the existing data sources for my report are gone. If I hit Refresh All, it doesn't do anything. When I click OK, all the data sources are removed from the RDLC. So to add a new data source, I have to also add all the other existing data sources again.

    Some things to note:

    Only happens in one project in my solution. Reports in the other projects are perfectly fine.

    Three different computers were tested and all three had the same issue.

    I ran VS with logging and see some warnings that I think may be related. There is a "CheckPackageSignature failed; invalid Package Load Key" The guid matches up with a Microsoft.VisualStudio.XsdDesigner.Package.DesignerPackage package.

    I've looked at project references and the ones I thought mattered seem to match the projects that work. Maybe there's one I'm overlooking?

    Does anyone have an idea what is going on?
