I'm using the ASP.NET ReportViewer control from Microsoft to show reports from the SQL Server Reporting server into a web application on an intranet.

when printed the reports from client machines who have admin priveledges to their own box receive "Unable to load client print control"  

(Note: Working well for some clients who is in same network )

Hello Mr Force.

The user gets a dialog stating “Unable to load client print control” when clicking the print button on a Reporting Services 2005 report.

There much written about this and what Microsoft update broke this so I won’t repeat it here. (Google – reporting services “Unable to load client print control”)

The bottom line is that there’s an update that added a “kill-bit” associated to the ActiveX printing control used by Reporting Services. There’s an update to Reporting Services that supposedly fixes this http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=82833f27-081d-4b72-83ef-2836360a904d&DisplayLang=en

OR you can uninstall these 2 updates KB956803 & KB956391

OR you can just delete the registry entry causing the problem

Copy the text below into a file with a REG file extension and double-click it...  Best to backup this registry key before deleting it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{FA91DF8D-53AB-455D-AB20-F2F023E498D3}]
