    Hello Charles,

    The Visual Studio Toolbox shows components based on the context. The Report Items are only visible in the Toolbox when you are in the context of the Telerik Reporting Designer. The ReportViewer controls/components on the other hand are visible in the context of a web page (for web site/app), windows form (for windows forms app) etc. So make sure you're in the correct context and if the viewer is still not visible, you might try resetting the Visual Studio Toolbox.

    I reset my toolbox as you said then I got all those little blue gears in my toolbox. I had to go in and manually add all the tools back to the box by right clicking the toolbox bar and clicking choose items. By doing this I found that ReportViewer never made it to my toolbox.

    Thanks,

    Hi Charles,

    Really strange, you might want to post a forum/ticket for RadControls for Windows forms to see if they know anything about this behavior.
    As for the original problem, I forgot to ask what Visual Studio version you use and whether the Report Items are available in your Toolbox or they are missing as well? If they are not I suggest you verify the installation by checking whether the "new item" templates are placed in (for Visual Studio 2010):

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp
    \Reporting    and C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting i.e it should contain a file named Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2010_SP1.zip. 

    If it is missing, the easiest way to recover the installation is try repairing the product installation.

    Another possibility is deselecting Visual Studio support during Telerik Reporting install, which in your particular case is not, since you had the items initially. Also if you are under Vista or Windows 7, you must start the installer as administrator, otherwise it might produce such quirks.

    Best wishes,
