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?

Hi,

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

Thanks.
