The WPF ReportViewer Throws a MethodAccessException


Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting
Version Q2 2012 and later
Report Viewers WPF


When connecting the WPF Report Viewer to the Telerik Report Server or Telerik Reporting REST API Service, a MethodAccessException error is thrown.

Error Message

Attempt by method 'Telerik.Reporting.Services.HttpClient.HttpRequestHelper.GetResponseFromPost(System.Net.Http.HttpResponseMessage)' to access method 'Telerik.Reporting.Services.HttpClient.HttpRequestHelper.GetResponseFromPost<T> (System.Net.Http.HttpResponseMessage, System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable 1<System.Net.Http.Formatting.MediaTypeFormatter>)' failed.


The most common reason for this exception is an incorrect version of the web client assemblies. The WPF viewer requires the Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.Client NuGet package.


Install the assemblies required by the WPF viewer through the Visual Studio NuGet Package Manager or with the Visual Studio Package Manager Console. For more details, refer to the article on using the WPF ReportViewer with the Report Server.
