VS SP1 will include updates for the report viewer controls themselves, but will not include an update for ReportViewer.exe. The reason is that the release process for SP1 was too complicated for us to include an additional redistributable within it. We will make a new redistributable package available after SP1, but a time frame has not been determined.

Hi Albert,

Your note was from November and as far as I can tell there is still no ReportViewer.exe update.

Is there any word on when this will be available My software is a ClickOnce winforms application. I don't believe there is any convenient way to update all my customers without a ReportViewer.exe update.

Thanks - Mike

Yep. It would be nice if we even had a estimate of a release date.

How about a method to install the new report viewer dll's onto a team build server

Before we used the redistributable, but as of right now, we're stuck with a broken build because our build server doesnt have the updated reportviewer dll's, which is obviously a very serious problem.

Also, this issue needs to be listed on the KB article that goes along with the service pack. If i had know it was going to break our build system, i never would have updated.

I think we should bombard this thread with posts so it is always on the first page and maybe it even makes the top 5.

By the sound of it, it seems others like myself have invested a lot of time with this viewer but have found basic missing functionality which really renders it an inferior product.

My main issue (output html stored in the database) was first raised in early 2005, the reply was that it was one of the most requested features and would definitly be in the next release, however it didn't happen in SP1, so I'm not holding my breath....

It feels like they have given up...

We are hoping to have some type of redistributable available next week. Sorry for the long delay. There will be 3 parts:

  1. A new version of ReportViewer.exe that includes SP1. This can install Report Viewer on new machines, but on machines that already have Report Viewer, the user will get a message that they need to uninstall the old version first.
  2. A patch that can silently update machines that already have Report Viewer.
  3. A patch for VS SP1 installations, replacing the ReportViewer.exe that ships with VS.

We expect parts 1 & 2 to be available next week. Part 3 will take longer.

As few of us are getting anxious................
