Converting reports from ActiveReports.
|Product||Progress® Telerik® Reporting|
|Report Designer||Visul Studio Report Designer|
The Telerik converter from ActiveReports is built against ActiveReports 3 (build 5.2.1013.2). If you're using a newer version of ActiveReports, you will need to add an assembly binding redirect statement to your Visual Studio configuration file.
Currently, the converter only works with ActiveReports 3.
Examine the Global Assembly Cache (C:\WINDOWS\assembly) to check which version of ActiveReports you have installed.
Depending on the version you use, modify the following statements accordingly and insert them in your configuration file, usually located at:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe.Config
<configuration> <runtime> <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1"> <dependentAssembly> <assemblyIdentity name="ActiveReports3" publicKeyToken="cc4967777c49a3ff" culture="neutral" /> <bindingRedirect newVersion="x.x.x.x" oldVersion="x.x.x.x" /> </dependentAssembly> <dependentAssembly> <assemblyIdentity name="ActiveReports.Viewer3" publicKeyToken="cc4967777c49a3ff" culture="neutral" /> <bindingRedirect newVersion="x.x.x.x" oldVersion="x.x.x.x" /> </dependentAssembly> </assemblyBinding> </runtime> </configuration>
where the first x.x.x.x is the version of ActiveReports that you are using and the second x.x.x.x is the version mentioned in the "New Report Wizard".
Restart Visual Studio.
Add new Telerik Report to your project and start the Report Wizard. On its second step, select "Convert from existing report".
