  • The updated redistributable only includes the runtime changes.  To pick up the design time changes, you should install VS 2005 SP1:


    PDF compression is not included in VS 2005 SP1.  It is included in VS 2008.

  • I know that PDF compression for local report is not included in VS 2005 SP1, but Microsoft has come up with Report Viewer redistributable Service pack 1. I tried to install it, but its not taking any effect. Its not showing the report viewer dlls of the version specified in release notes on my system.

  • The SP1 redist is meant to align with SP1 of VS.  The redist will install the updated dlls into the GAC.
