ReportViewer Localization RRS feed

  • Question

  • User665349069 posted

    Hi All, I'm not sure what I'm missing.  I have a ReportViewer working in our application in English.  If I switch the application to French - a language pack included in the control - only parts of it are in French.  Things like the tooltips are not.  I have checked out a number of links on the matter, but there is something I have obvsiously missed.  This is ReportViewer 2005 and I read through this link....


    These steps in particular caught my attention:

  • Run ReportViewer.exe.

  • Navigate to the folder that contains the language pack you want to use. Language pack folders are located at <drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\ReportViewer\<lang>.

  • Run ReportViewerLP.exe.

    After much searching, I found a download for the ReportViewerLP.exe (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=e3d3071b-d919-4ff9-9696-c11d312a36a0) and got the French one.  My problem is that I only have English in the path speicied above:  (<drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\ReportViewer\<lang>)

    Can anyone point me to what I have missed?  I expect to find an "fr" folder in the above path.  I have seen some posts on how people have localized the ReportViewer for languages which aren't supported - but I thought French already was.....is it that the tooltips are not, or more likely, is it something I messed up :-).
