  • This is issue is resolved...I wanna share you if you have Button on updatepanel and reportviewer is also in same panel then you have to attach postbacktrigger event for button control .

    We are facing the same problem, but the strange thing is we are NOT getting this error when we run the web application from my local machine, we are able to see the reports from aspx page which has updatepanel and reportviewer control... but when we do check-in code to TFS (Team Foundation Server), we are getting this error.
