System.Runtime.Serialization crashing Report Designer RRS feed

  • Question

  • The report designer crashes in my instance of VS2008SP1 when I have System.Runtime.Serialization included in my web project (my reports also live in this web project).  If I remove System.Runtime.Serialization and rebuild the web project I can open existing reports and design new reports.  Of course the project doesn't fully compile, so when I'm done working on the reports I have to add System.Runtime.Serialization back into my web project.

    I can't replicate this problem with a simple test project.

    I'm posting this mainly for future searchers, if Report Designer crashes in a web project and your project includes a reference to System.Runtime.Serialization, try removing that reference, rebuilding the web project, then designing your report.
