Telerik Reporting wizards don't show up in VS 2017 Toolbox


Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting
Visual Studio version Visual Studio 2017


After installing Telerik Reporting, the Visual Studio 2017 Toolbox does not contain any Telerik Reporting wizards.

Cause\Possible Cause(s)

Тhe assembly that initializes our wizards called Telerik.Reporting.Design.Components hasn't got an available path that should be taken from.


During the installation of Telerik Reporting on your machine, the Telerik assemblies were added to GAC. The resolution would be to load the Telerik.Reporting.Design.Components assembly manually from there. Here are the steps:

  1. Open a report in VS designer and open the Toolbox

  2. Right-click over the Telerik Reporting R1 2019 -> navigate to Choose items... -> .NET Framework Components

  3. Click Browse...

  4. Navigate to:

  5. Add Telerik.Reporting.Design.Components.dll (check this screen shot).

After these steps, the wizards should be available for use.
