ReportView controls redistributable RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've built an app that uses the rv controls v 8.0.50727.817 and built a corresponding ClickOnce (from network url) installer specifying that the "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Report Viewer" be installed as a prerequisite.  I've also checked "Download prerequisites from component vendor's website".  The target workstations may also need the .Net Framework 2.0 installed so I can't have it download from the same place as my app. 


    The installation does install the report viewer dll's into the GAC but they are version 8.0.50727.42 so the app fails.  I've tried including the 817 dlls in the installer and installing them locally;  the app works unless the client workstations already have the.42 version installed into the GAC previously via some other (not ours - perhaps MS sql server?) installer.  How do I get the 817 dlls installed into the GAC from MS directly?
