I was having a heck of a time trying to create a report in Visual Studio 2017.  I removed references to version 9 and installed 150.1400 from nuget and added the references back.  I was never able to get a report viewer onto a form.  It always ended up at the bottom as a component like the timer or backgroundworker.  I uninstalled 2017 and installed 2019 after hours of unsuccessful google fu trying to fix it.  2019 allows me to drop a report viewer onto a form but I am missing the add new item - report option.  So now I can drop a report viewer onto a form but I can't add an RDLC to my winforms project.  I may go back to VS 2010 where things just worked...This is crazy frustrating.

Any ideas on getting the report creation option into the menu?

Thanks
