Vrijedi za: Visual StudioVisual Studio Enterprise 2015Visual Studio Professional 2015 Više

Symptoms


When you use Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio 2015 17.x release and Visual Studio 2017, you are blocked from using Custom Report Items that are older than current release. The affected component is the Reporting Services Report Designer.

Workaround


To work around this issue, modify the Devenv.exe.config file by adding or editing the following entries. This file is located in programInstallDir\common7\ide.

        <dependentAssembly>          <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" culture="neutral" />          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="9.0.242.0-13.0.0.0" newVersion="14.0.0.0"/>        </dependentAssembly>        <dependentAssembly>          <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.ReportingServices.Designer" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" culture="neutral" />          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="9.0.242.0-13.0.0.0" newVersion="14.0.0.0"/>        </dependentAssembly>        <dependentAssembly>          <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.ReportingServices.QueryDesigners" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" culture="neutral" />          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="9.0.242.0-13.0.0.0" newVersion="14.0.0.0"/>        </dependentAssembly>

More information


The Devenv.exe.config file is included with Visual Studio. For Visual Studio 2015, there are no more updates. For Visual Studio 2017, Microsoft will make a change. However, the change will not be released until Visual Studio 2017 Update 2. In the RTM version, you will still experience this issue.

Status


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
