ReportViewer for Visual Studio 2008

I am trying to create a report in VS 2008.  I have ReportViewer  When I drag the report viewer control to the web page I get an error:  "Error Creating Control:  ReportViewer.  Failed to create designer "Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportViewer, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms, Version =, culture = neutral, . . .

I have every thing else designed: dataset, report, etc.

Can anyone help me resolve this problem?

It seems like you're trying to use the WinForms version of the ReportViewer in your web app.  WinForms is for thick-client (i.e. regular) Windows apps.

The one you need is located in the Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms namespace.
