ReportViewer MS Visual Web Dev 2008 Express doesn't work

Hi Just trying to get my had around reportviewer in MS Visual Web Dev 2008 .
I ran RepportViewer.exe redisbution for 2008 on the server but and I cannot see ReportViewer in toolbox under Data in MS Visual Web Dev 2008 installed on the server . So I decided to do it manually but I'm still having an error "Error creating control failed to create designer ..."
I added in web.config that:
<add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />
<add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />

<add path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" verb="*" type="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToke=31bf3856ad364e35" validate="false" />


I added in aspx page that:

<%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"

Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>


All my attempts have been futile

Hi levirtuose,

You can try the following steps.

Firstly, you should copy the key dll of reportviewer into current bin directory.

Secondly, you can use the following method to import the dll.

Website->Add Reference->Browse  the dll and add it into project.

I have a similar problem--I get

Execution 'qiqxliengztwci454gqefh55' cannot be found

with a different Guid every time I load the page.  I have added this to my config:

<add path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" verb="*" type="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" validate="false" />

  •  and I have added references to all 3 DLLs into the project, as well as copying the dlls into the bin dir (redundant, but just in case).  I've also registered those assemblies in my config using
  • <add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />

    <add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />

  • and still, no luck.  The relevant code in my markup is:

  • <%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

    Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>

    <asp:Content ID="conMain" ContentPlaceHolderID="c" runat="server">

    <rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server" ProcessingMode="Remote">

    <ServerReport ReportPath="/Orders" ReportServerUrl="http://stage/reportserver" DisplayName="Test" />




    The really odd part is that the report does display once I've published my app.  The report also works when I browse to in the reporting server web app (it's using sql server 2005 reporting services).  I can't figure out why I can't view this report in the IDE (VS 2008 SP1).  Are 2005 reports not compatible with vs 2008?  I need to view it there in order to develop against it.  Please help, I don't know what else to try.

    Update on this--I managed to find a workaround.  The built-in web server in my VS 2008 SP1 gives me the Execution cannot be found every time.  However, when I switched to serve using my local IIS, it worked, but only if I run without debugging.

    Is this a problem with the VS web server, or am I missing a configuration option?  It's unfortunate to have to run them this way, plus it makes development difficult without running in debug mode.  Anything I can do?

    Thanks for your help,

On the XP machine, when I open VWD Express 2008 I get an option to use Web Application project template as a new project option but on my Vista machine I only get an option to use Web site model template option.

    Can't get the Web Controls to work.. The Build.Bat file doesn't work? HELP>> ARGGG>.
    Hi.. I was wanting to use the IE Web Controls, the Tab Strip, etc, and play with it.. Since I have IIS 5, I thought I'd copy them there using the Read me.txt instructions and then copy to a dev server that I use at a web host.. Well, everything worked except the Build file doesn't build the Microsoft.UI.Webcontrols.DLL file? When I try to run it by double clicking on it, it runs really fast in  the DOS window, but I can't see what it says and it closes.. So I tried to do so manually and I received an error that the "cse.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command or batch...
