Report Viewer Version 11 - Cannot load assembly? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using version 11 of Report Viewer to display .rdlc Reports within the application.

    On Web Server 1 the Reports render fine.

    On Web Server 2 an error is displayed stating "Failed to load assembly".

    The difference between the servers is that Web Server 1 has Visual Studio 2012 installed so the dll's are in the GAC aswell as the bin folder of the application.

    Web Server 2 does NOT have Visual Studio 2012 installed and the dll's are ONLY in the bin folder.

    Web Server 2 is a Production server so I cannot install Visual Studio and as a result the gacutil is not available either as a result.

    How can I get these three dll's into the GAC on Web Server 2 given that gacutil is not on the server?

    The application checks the GAC first for the dll's eventhough they are in the bin folder?

  • Hi NuTech,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Since this forum is to discuss: Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor. Based on your issue, I think that the issue is more Report control issue, so I suggest you can post this issue directly to Visual Studio Report Controls forum, it will be better support.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
