    I have an application that creates Telerik reports, with references to Telerik.Reporting (, Telerik.Reporting.Winforms (, DocumentFormat.OpenXml (2.0.5022.0), and WindowsBase. All the associated DLL files are located in the same folder as the executable. When I run the application from my workstation, all is well and the extra options appear in the Export drop down (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, XPS). However, when I install and run it on another machine, the extra options do not appear in the Export drop down.


    What would be the cause for this conflict? Does Microsoft Office have to be installed in order to export Telerik reports as Word Documents/Power Point documents?

    Hello Frank,

    For OpenXML support, the two following assemblies are required:
    • Telerik.Reporting.OpenXmlRendering.dll
    • DocumentFormat.OpenXml.dll v.2.0.5022.0 or above

    Ensure you both files are referenced in your project, and have the CopyLocal=True property set. When deploying the project, ensure that both files are also being deployed along with the main executable.
