The Telerik converter from ActiveReports is built against

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".
