upgrading ReportViewer to new version RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi, I am upgrading the ReportViewer to the latest version - I've run this (
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=E7D661BA-DC95-4EB3-8916-3E31340DDC2C&displaylang=en ) and it seems to have upgraded my GAC version of Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms to 8.0.50727.817.

    This is the version I want, however, in my C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\ReportViewer folder, the assemblies are still version 8.0.50727.42 which is the old version.

    Can someone explain to me what is the GAC and what is the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\ReportViewer folder? Because at the moment, my project seems to only be able to take precedence the assembles that are in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\ReportViewer, over the GAC.

    I am unable to reference the 8.0.50727.817 version of the ReportViewer in the GAC in my project...
