VS2010 and .NET 2.0: a workable combination for ReportViewer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using VS2010, I have developed a website for ASP.NET 2.0, and would like to use a ReportViewer using local mode.  When I try to use the ReportViewer in the .net controls, I get the "newer version of .Net framework required" error.  If upgrading the server to .NET 3.5 is not possible, what options do I have?

  • Starting in VS2008 ReportViewer (v9.0), .NET 3.5 is required. In VS2010 (v10.0), ReportViewer requires either .NET 3.5 or .NET 4.

    The VS2005 version of ReportViewer (v8.0) does support .NET 2.0. However, not sure if that's what you want to use. For more info, see http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=8A166CAC-758D-45C8-B637-DD7726E61367.

    Well, I downloaded the Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 (including Service Pack 1).  It wasn't immediately clear what the install did, but after hunting around, I see that it created the folder C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2005.  This appears to be a bunch of files for the web server.  How do I get the microsoft.reportviewer.webforms.dll associated with this, so I can add it to my application?

  • I figured out the issue with the dlls, and now am working through the solution.  There seem to be a lot of conflicts between VS2010 wanting to use ReportViewer 10.0 and me wanting to use 8.0, but I'm trying to work through them now.  Will report if I am successful.
