Print issue with SSRS 2008 ActiveX control. RRS feed

  • Question

  • The client ActiveX Control, RSClientPrint, wants installed every time a print from SSRS is requested.  Installing it once doesn't work.  After doing some debugging (I'm new to Windows troubleshooting) it seems that SSRS requests a newer version of the ActiveX control than the .CAB file will deploy.

    I've tried every patch suggested (even a couple hotfixes) and this problem still occurs.

    Any suggestion?  In the least, where can I obtain the latest version?  Or a correction to the SSRS assembly to request the version I have?  Or a config file I can edit as a workaround?

  • Hi Mini,

    From you description, it is keep asking every time to install ActiveX Control, RSClientPrint when you try to print any report, right? This issue occurs because Internet Explorer is requesting the current build file. However, the server only has the RTM version file. There is a fix for this issue, for more information about it, please see:

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
