    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We were able to reproduce the problem when using a report serialized with SubReport that is set via Instance Report Source. I have logged this problem in our system for fixing and your Telerik points have been updated as a token of gratitude.

    For the time being, please use Uri ReportSource.
