Report Viewer Visual c++ express RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys.

    I have downloaded the sql express with advanced services. I have the bids. I am able to add a report viewer now in the visual c++ 2008 but when  i try to click to a "design a new report" i got an error message.


    I am running c++ express in administrator mode(right click run as admin). Any help? If i run the SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio i am able to do a report but this doesn't help me so much because i can't generate the report at runtime.

  • Hi Warkec,

    The designer for Report Viewer is only for C# and VB project types. It is not designed to work with C++. You can still use the control and bind reports programmatically, but the designer is not intended for C++.

  • I have not tried the various express sku's, but reading the announcement page, it looks like the viewer was only released for the Web Express edition. Please give that a try.
