Hello

I have setup a reportviewer on a asp.net webform.  It worked fine before I tried using IReportServerCredentials, it just prompted me for a username/password.  Now after implementing the credentials I keep getting a 500 error.  What am I doing wrong?

Set the debug=true and disable the customerror pages in the web.config file to see where the problem is.

Yeah debug is set to true and customErrors mode = off.  Not sure why I'm not seeing an actual error.

I believe in order for the report viewer control to function correctly, in the ReportServerUrl, you need to specify the path to the report server.  Then for ReportPath you need to give the directory structure and report name as the report it setup.
ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = New System.Uri("https://www.mysite.com/ReportServer/")
ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportPath = "Directory1/ReportName"

I've got that exact setup now.  Ok so I had to go into the appsettings in IIS for that specific program and change it from version 3.5 back to "classic" or 2.0 to get the page to even load.  Now it loads fine but I don't get a reportviewer.  Just a blank iframe...
