Hi,

My project was developed with VS 2010, when trying to open it with VS2015, I receive the following errors:
Type: Microsoft.Reporting.Winforms.ReportViewer' is not defined
Type: Microsoft.Reporting.Winforms.ReportDataSource' is not defined

When I go to the reference section to add the DLLs for the viewer, it does not appear on list of options to select, the version showing in my project is 0.0000.

How do I so;ve this issue?

Thanks,

Victor

View the properties of the project. It probably doesn't have a defined path. Remove the undefined path and add the correct path. Then, go to your toolbox and add the Report Viewer.

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply. I can't find the Report Viewer on the toolbox for some reason, is there a way to add it in the tool box?

which version of crystal report is installed on your machine ?

if you are using visual studio 2015 then you need to have service pack 16.

try the below link

Hi,

The Viewer I'm using is part of VS not crystal Reports.

Thanks.
