Just got this Warning out of nowhere...haven't done anything with Reports for months in my program:

The value of the 'PublicKey' attribute in 'Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Report Viewer' does not match that of file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bootstrapper\Packages\ReportViewer\ReportViewer.exe

What do I do?

Tried the RenewCert process, good to have, but didn't work for my problem.

Here's what I had to do to fix it:
Get the Public Key of the executable it was referring to (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bootstrapper\Packages\ReportViewer\ReportViewer.exe)...I use the Bootstrapper Manifest Generator to get it.  (New Project > Add File...ReportViewer.exe > Go to the Security Tab to get the Public Key)
Copy the updated Public Key in the 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\ReportViewer\product.xml' file where it shows the wrong Public Key number.
Save.  Rebuild.

Warning should go away.
