We recently downloaded and installed the 2010.2 921 version of Telerik Reporting.

We then proceeded by creating a new class library as described on page 6 of your Learning Guide PDF. However, when we try to add a new item to the library, there is no Telerik Report template to add.

There are no Telerik item templates in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplatesCache folder.

I've looked through several forum posts regarding this issue, but couldn't find a real solution for this.

Any help would be appreciated.

I just found out that there's a zip file "Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2010_SP1" in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\VSTA\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\1033.
I unzipped the file, but there are still no Telerik templates in Visual Studio when I want to add a new item to the class library.

Hi Ulrich,

There are a couple of things you need to check:
  • what is your exact Visual Studio version? Note that as per the system requirements, only Standard, Professional and Team System Editions are supported. If you have Express edition or web developer, you would not be able to install Telerik Reporting.
  • if #1 complies, check that you have Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2010_SP1.zip file in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic (CSharp respectively)\ folder. If not, then most likely the Telerik Reporting installer did not detect Visual Studio 2005 on your machine and have not installed support for it. This could be due to #1, if your Visual Studio instance is corrupted or if you have manually deselected VS2005 from the installer menu. If this is your case, re-install Telerik Reporting and make sure VS2005 support is selected.
  • if Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2010_SP1.zip is present in the above folder, please open Visual Studio Command Prompt as Administrator and run the following command: devenv.exe /InstallVSTemplates.

Sincerely yours,
Steve

Hi Steve,
thanks for your reply.

  • Visual Studio version:
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, Version 9.0.30729.1 SP
    Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 3.5 SP1
  • I re-installed Telerik Reporting and made sure both VS2005 and VS2008 support was selected.
  • After installing I can then find the Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2010_SP1.zip file in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting\1033 folder.
  •  I ran the devenv.exe /InstallVSTemplates command, but nothing happens.

Hello Ulrich,

Your first post misled us, as the Visual Studio version referenced in the path you've pasted is for Visual Studio 2005 and it works differently than VS2008. What you should do is close all Visual Studio instances and copy the Telerik Reporting template from:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting\1033

to:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting

i.e. copy the template one directory up. Then open Visual Studio Command Prompt as Administrator and run devenv.exe /InstallVSTemplates.

These steps should eliminate the original problem, which after further investigation proved to be caused by using localized Windows, in your case German edition. We've fixed the issue in our install scripts immediately and there would be no such problem in subsequent versions.
