I am using a reportviewer for a local report in VS2010.  The report viewer works perfectly when used on my local machine in the visual studio environment, but when I load the report pages, dataset, reportviewer, and changed web config file on the production server it throws an error.

"Could not load the assembly 'Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version 10.0.0.0.0, Culture=Neutral, PublicKeyToken=....' or one of its dependencies.  The system cannot find the file specified."

This is for a local report.  I am not using remote processing.

Can anyone help??

Thanks in advance!!

Have you installed the ReportViewer components on your production server? If you do, is it the right version?

If you haven't you can get it here: https://www.nuget.org/packages/MicrosoftReportViewerWebForms_v10/

Thanks for the reply.  I have not added the ReportViewer to the server.  It was my understanding that I should not have to dowload anything if this is a local report.  It simply works off the resources loaded in the application.

Not correct?  If this is not correct please explain.

Thanks again.

A "Local Report" only performs the data processing locally, the server still requires the server components in order to be able to serve the report, and the raw source data, to the client in the first place.

If you just download and follow the instructions in the link i posted earlier, it will sort itself out. I imagine it will install to the GAC so it is available server wide.
