I have writen a site using VS2010 and all was working well until I create some reports.  

I then got the below error message when I moved the site to my production server.

Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Source Error:

Line 15:     <compilation debug="true" strict="false" explicit="true" targetFramework="4.0">
Line 16:       <assemblies>
Line 17:         <add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />

Line 19:         <add assembly="Microsoft.Build.Framework, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />

Source File: C:\inetpub\BlazeBillz\web.config    Line: 17

I looked this up on a few websites and a few people suggested chageing the to in the web.config file.  This does allow the site to be loaded, but the reports page still does not work.

I would much prefer to just get version to work on my production server.

Does any one know wher I can get this version from?

If this is, in fact, BETA software, then...what do you expect?

I've sorted it.

I found the correct version on the reportviewer.exe in the

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\ReportViewer\

dir copied it over to my server, installed it and rebooted the server and it sorted it.
