The Microsoft Report Viewer 2005 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Redistributable Package includes the following:
Microsoft Report Viewer control for Windows Forms
Microsoft Report Viewer Web server control for Microsoft ASP.NET
These controls are used to view reports that are designed by using Microsoft reporting technology.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 SP1 included several fixes in the ReportViewer control and in Report Designer. However, the redistributable package for Report Viewer was not updated in Visual Studio 2005 SP1. The Report Viewer 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package includes all the fixes that were in the ReportViewer control that is installed together with Visual Studio 2005 SP1. The Report Viewer 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package also includes the fixes that are not included in the Report Viewer Redistributable Package that is shipped together with Visual Studio 2005 SP1. Additionally, some regression bugs that were introduced with the ReportViewer control that is installed together with Visual Studio 2005 SP1 are now fixed in this latest Report Viewer 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package.
Note The ReportViewer control that is installed when you install Visual Studio 2005 SP1 is not updated when you install the full installation of the Report Viewer 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package. In this case, Visual Studio 2005 SP1 continues to use the ReportViewer control that was included in Visual Studio 2005 SP1.
