  • Depends what you are trying to do - if the Report Viewer Redist runtime is sufficient for what you are looking for, you can use it with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 as well: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a941c6b2-64dd-4d03-9ca7-4017a0d164fd

  • Hi Robert,

    First of all thanks for your reply. I have already downloaded Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 and also installed it, but i don't know how to use it in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition.

  • The redist only installs the runtime controls it does not install any of the design time pieces, so you won't get the Control design time or 2010 Report Designer experience in VS 2008. What you can do though is reference the 2010 controls and develop against them since they will work against the 2.0 CLR.

  • I have loaded the version 10 into my VS2010 and copied the dll's from windows\assembly to VS directory. So far anything seems to work OK except the chart. I want to plot a line by using data points from our database. Seems to me now under ReportViewer10 the chart only load the first point from a data field. For example, expression "=Fields!POINT_1.Value" should give me every points of that column, but instead only the first point get plotted on the graph. Does anyone know what's going on here? Thanks

  • Bear in mind that Report Viewer 2010 requires SQL Server 2008 for remote report processing. Found that out the hard way :-(

  • Hi Matt

    I am struggling with the same problem. I have vs 2008 and downloaded ReportViewer 2010 and i can not find the reference in the visual studio "Add Reference" dialog. The reason i am going to all this trouble is because i understand that finally in this version of the report viewer, the control can be stopped (in case you want to stop a very long report...)  at the middle of the rendering without closing the browser.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
