Summary

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario. You have a report that is hosted by a report server in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services together with SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2). The report uses the default background color. SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services renders the report to an enhanced metafile (EMF) file. You view the EMF file in the application. In this scenario, the background color of the report may be black. However, you expect the background color of the report to be white.

This problem typically occurs when you preview the report in the application before you print the report. For example, this problem occurs when you preview the report in Report Manager or in the ReportViewer Web server control before you print the report.
