Reportviewer Version for Server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm updating some reports that were designed in Visual Studio 2005, I'm doing my updates in VS2013.

    The reports work fine. The version of report viewer is

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\ReportViewer\Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll

    However, I'm having a problem deploying to users on Windows Server 2008. The code requires Report Viewer 2012 runtime to be installed. However trying to install Report Viewer 2012 brings up another error "The 'Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 Runtime' item selected requires 'Microsoft.SqlServer.SQLSysClrTypes.11.0'. Looking online, this seems to another bunch of problems.

    I'm not using any of the new features of Report Viewer 2012. So I see two options:

    1) Work out a way to install Report Viewer 2012 on Windows Server 2008.

    2) Use an older version of Report Viewer dll from within VS2013. Is this possible?

    Which way would be better?

    Thanks

  • Hi SimeonD,

    According to your description, you created SSRS reports in Visual Studio 2005 and updated the reports in Visual Studio 2013, the reports work fine. You got the warning messages when you deploy the reports in Windows Server 2008.

    To solve the problem, please refer to the following steps:

    1. Download the msi file for “Microsoft® System CLR Types for SQL Server® 2012 (x64)” into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\SqlClrTypes_x64” from the URL http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=239644&clcid=0x409
    2. Download the msi file for “Microsoft® System CLR Types for SQL Server® 2012 (x86)” into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\SqlClrTypes_x86 from the URL http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=239643&clcid=0x409
    3. Select the option “download prerequisites from the same location as my application” while adding the prerequisite into the bootstrapper package.

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

  • These are not Visual Basic questions. You'll probably find more knowledgeable people on this topic in the SQL Reporting Services forum: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=sqlreportingservices

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35747 The 2012 runtime redist doesn't list Server 2008 as a supported platform, presuming you didn't mean 2008 R2.

  • Thanks, its been moved now. 

    You are correct, I didn't mean R2. So it seems ReportViewer 2010 is the latest version that will work. How do I ensure I am using that version within Visual Studio?
