Visual Studio crashes when trying to add new Dataset RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to add new Dataset in rdlc file, but the Visual studio crashes and restarts everytime I was trying to do that. I tried doing the same action in different project and the action was performed perfectly. I tried removing and adding the references to Microsoft Reports again and again, but i still can't see what's the problem. 

    The only solution was opening the file as html and adding the datasets by writing which is irritating.

    Please help me.

    Thanks in advance.

  • I opened new project and the reports were working just fine. I still haven't figured out what the problem is.

  • Same issue with the same project in VS2012 and VS2010.  New projects don't have the issue.  

    I created a new project, created a report, then copied that report to the affected project.  Attempting to modify the dataset from within the report in the affected project results in VS2012 crashing (right-click, DataSet Properties instantly crashes).

  • Hi,

    I wasn't able to reproduce this problem... would it be possible to send the affected project to us? Or any kind of repro project if you have one which you can share...

    If so, please send it to vitkaras at microsoft dot com.

  • Hello,

    I was facing the same problem. And finally I could solve it

    Well, since VS2012 you have a kind of WebSite called Reports Web Site. Basically it is the same thing as a normal web site. Just a template to help user.

    I dunno why in this kind of project the VS doesn't crashes when adding new dataset.

    I hope to have helped
