Problem while deploying Reportviewer.winforms RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I have a project which was developed earlier in VB 2008 using Reportviewer.Winforms version 9.00. Have now upgraded the Project to Visual Stuidio 2015. Have reports here using Reportviewer.Winforms version 12.00. Working fine when set reference to new version of Reportviewer in Projects. However having problem when deploying on a remote machine.

    Problem while running any form having Reportviewer. Get error message "Could Not Load File or Assembly Reportviewer.Winforms version 12.00"

    I am copying the entire bin>>Debug>> folder. 

    'Bin' folder has both Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common.dll & Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll. 

    Worked fine earlier in VS 2008 with Reportviewer.Winforms version 9.00

    I guess problem can be that remote machines only have version 9 registered. however tried downloading from Microsoft site & even installing .Net 4.6 but to no avail
