The MSI files are intended for easy and automatic installation of the product on your computer to a folder named Telerik in your Program Files, automatically creating the necessary virtual folders and projects.
Telerik Reporting also can be downloaded and installed through Telerik Control Panel. The option to download and install the Control Panel is front and center on the page, after logging into your Telerik account.
To install Telerik Reporting on your machine using the msi installer follow the instructions below:
Log into your Telerik account and click on the "Products & Subscriptions" options from the top menu.
In the dropdown that appears choose from your purchased products or trial downloads Telerik Reporting, and click on it. If you have purchased a collection you would need to click on it and the downloads page will show all purchased products, where you can select Telerik Reporting. If you have downloaded a Trial version of Telerik products, click on Trials in "Products & Subscriptions" menu, and the downloads page will list all available trial products.
Click on Download Installer and other resources (the Download link next to the suite if you are a trial user). You need to choose Telerik Reporting suite if you have purchased the collection and click its Browse all product files button.
Download the Automatic installation (MSI) file.
Once the download completes, run the Telerik_Reporting_R1 2017.msi and follow the instructions.
Internal builds can be found also in your Telerik account, under "Downloads", then "Latest Internal Build". If you need an older internal build, the loaded page will let you select Telerik Reporting and a major version of the product to which internal builds belong.
The 'Downloads' page lists previously downloaded products. If you are missing a product or its version, please contact our Sales team through the support ticketing system by submitting a 'General feedback' thread.
