Hello,

I'm using Microsoft SQL Server 2005(SP2), Visual Studio 2005 (ASP.Net) and SSRS 2005 for my web application.

When I click on the print icon on the report from Report Viewer, it gives an error-message as 'Unable to load client print control'.
A pop-up for installing Microsoft SQL Server comes, After installing it the error was resolved.
But when I repeated the same process on another m/c the error was not resolved, even the update was not installed on my m/c.

Is there any other solution for this?

To support client-side printing, SSRS requires an Active X component.  That's the popup which you've encountered.

The SQL server needs the printer software to be installed for the printer you want to use.
