Converting reports from ActiveReports.

Environment

Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting
Report Designer Visul Studio Report Designer

Description

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.

Solution

  • 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".
