    Hi,

    I decided to test new reports and I've installed it on my dev machine with windows 2008 + VS2008 (english version). Then I spend about 2h thinking about how to create new report. After this time I found that in 'add new item' box new report is named as 'class' (as normal .cs file) not 'telerik report'. Please fix it, becouse is very not logical.

    Regards

    Hello tspossible,

    The name of the reporting item template should be Telerik Report Q1 2008. Please refer to the online documentation for more information: Creating a Report where you can find some screenshots illustrating that. The default extension of the file is .cs(.vb) because the report is represented by a .net object defined in class file which is compiled together with the rest of the code.

    Please, send us a screenshot if there is some sort of discrepancy on your configuration.

    Kind regards,

    I'm still spending hours on figuring out, how to make the correct Telerik Reporting template become visible for web projects.   It works fine for winform projects and class libraries.  However no matter how i copy the Telerik Reporting Q1 2008 template zip file around in the Templates folder ... it never shows up in VS 2005 for web projects :(

    Tspossbile:  Try adding a new item to a class library, then you might experience the same thing as me.

    Bgrds.

    Hi all,

    tspossible:
    Please refer to the following forum post which describes how to install the item templates manually:
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/thread/b311D-bddtdd.aspx

    Henrik:
    Please make sure that you have the following files on their respective locations after extracting them from the .zip archive:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2008.zip

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2008.zip

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\Web\VisualBasic\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2008.zip

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\Web\CSharp\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2008.zip

    If they are present but the reporting template is still missing from the Add New Item dialog then you have to run 

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe /installVStemplates.

    Be sure that Visual Studio is not running at this moment.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi,

    Thanks for the answer but unfortunatly it gives me nothing, I have read this post before and I did everything exactly like in it AND I have templates installed.. but they bad named (as you can see on screenshot, wrong icon and bad name, but its a telerik report template).

    Hi tspossible,

    Could you please specify which edition of Visual Studio do you use? If everything is on its place, the only reason for the problem might be an incompatible version of Visual Studio or somehow corrupted installation.
