Dim path As String = Application.StartupPath & "\labels\report1.rdlc"
frm_main.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath =  path 
frm_main.ReportViewer1.ServerReport.Refresh()

What your report have ? You should indicate the datasource ... don't you have one?
 
frm_main.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(New ReportDataSource("TableName", ds.Tables(0)))

Then try this way and make sure that the path for the report1.rdlc is correct
Dim path As String = Application.StartupPath & "\labels\report1.rdlc"
frm_main.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath =  path 
frm_main.ReportViewer1.RefreshReport()
