Hi mvh ravnø,

Could you please tell me if you have already downloaded ReportViewer 2012 Redistributable from Microsoft and want to know if it is included in the Reditributable list of InstallShield Limited Edition for Visual Studio?

Kindly correct me if my understanding of this issue is not right.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks,
Chaitra

Hi Chaitra

I am referencing ReportViewer 2012 (Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll) in my Windows App.
When I publish the application for test-purpose, I use ClickOnce - ReportViewer is downloaded and installed, and it all works fine.

When I put the application in operation, I make *.msi, an let Novell ZCM handle the install on the endusers PC.
In VS2010 I used the Visual Studio Installer.

In VS2013 I must use InstallShield LE. This doesn't include ReportViewer 2012
I can't choose RW2012 as a redistributable.

How do I include the reportviewer in my installation package - alternative make it download and install the reportviewer as part of the installation ?

I haven't downloaded ReportViewer.exe, but there are references in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.1A\Bootstrapper\Packages\ to both reportviewer and sqlclrtypes.

Hi Chaitra

When I publish my application using ClickOnce, it installs Reportviewer 2012 ok.

Do you mean download in Redistributables in my Setup Project ?
There I can only see ReportViewer 2010, not 2012.

Hi mvh ravnø,

Yes, i meant download the ReportViewer 2012 Redistributable from the below link:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=35747

Kindly place this in the following path location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2013LE\SetupPrerequisites

Please let me know if this did not help.

Thanks,
Chaitra

... or anywhere in the setup-project.

As I se redistributables, you can only use, what InstallShield has put in the list.
