Good morning,

I have been looking for a reporting solution for my WPF project and downloaded the 60-day trial today as IMO the Telerik API's are the best I've seen. However, I seemed to have stumbled at the first hurdle.

I've created a .NET 4 app, (Not Client Profile) and tried to add a new report to the solution and I am getting the following error message in VS2010:

The vstemplate file references the wizard class 'Telerik.Reporting.Design.Wizard.AddNewReportWizard', which does not exist in the assembly 'Telerik.Reporting.Design, Version=6.0.12.215, Culture=neutral, PublicToken=a9d7983dfcc261be'. 

Could someone help me with this because I'm keen to get on with the project and order Telerik Reporting if it does the job for me!

Thank you,

Paul Pitchford.

Note: The example solutions that have reports already in them seem to work great.

Hello Paul,

This is an issue that slipped into the Q1 2012 release. To fix it until we release an internal build/service pack addressing the issue, please do the following:
  1. Close all Visual Studio instances.
  2. Open C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting and locate the Telerik Reporting Item Template Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012.zip.
  3. Replace that file with the one we have attached to this ticket.
  4. Open Visual Studio command prompt and run devenv /installvstemplates.
  5. Start Visual Studio and create reports as needed.

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

Regards,
Steve

Cancel that. After running your instructions, I've just tried to add a new WPF form and now I am getting this error:

Could not find file 'c:\users\paul\appdata\local\microsoft\visualstudio\10.0\itemtemplatescache_{00000000-0000-0000-0000-0000000000}\visualBasic\WPF\1033\WPFWindow.zip\Window1.xaml'

Please could you tell me what has happened here!

Fortunately running the Visual Studio repair feature on the setup DVD resolved this issue for me. This wasn't the start I was looking for especially considering that I am only a small freelance developer and this would be quite an investment for me! We'll have to see how the next 60 days go.

Hi guys,

We were not able to reproduce such a problem in our local tests on a couple of machines. We successfully added WPF Page, Window and UserControl with no errors. The attached zip archive in this thread is only our VB item template, so we do not change any other templates in VS and the devenv.exe /installvstemplates command is needed in order to install the new template. The only possible explanation I can think of for such a weird problem (for which google knows nothing about) could be if you had somehow corrupted the WPF Window template and the installvstemplates command has installed the corrupted one.

Kind regards,
Steve

Changed assembly name in vstemplate, hope now it will work.

        <Assembly>Telerik.Reporting.Design.VisualStudio,
Version=6.0.12.215, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be</Assembly>
        <FullClassName>Telerik.Reporting.Design.VisualStudio.AddNewReportWizard</FullClassName>

Hi Jacek,

The C# item template is correct so there is no need for any manual change, the problem is only with the VB.NET item template.

I follow all of the instructions but it is not solving the issue.  I keep getting the error.  Using VB.NET and none of the instructions have resolved this issue.  Would really be great if this gets resolved ASAP.  I have a client depending on this functionality.

Same as Seth, I followed the instruction and the error persists even in C#.

I don't know if this is important to mention but I have installed VS.NET in a different location than the default one. Anything else I can do?, do you have a release date for a final fix?

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys,

@Andres and @Seth: if you are not logged in as Administrator, please do. Also if you are adding Telerik Reports directly to a web site project, be aware that the item template for web site projects is different. Our suggestion is to follow the Solution Structure help article and add reports to a separate class library.
@Andres: If VS is installed to a different location, then you should respectively change the path from the instructions.
@ISB - the error says it all, you should run the Visual Studio command prompt as administrator or best log-in with Administrator account.

All the best,
Steve

Thanks Steve, I searched for the ItemTemplate for web projects and found it at:

Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\Web\VisualBasic

and, as Jacek, I opened the Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012.zip file, changed the class.vstemplate file, specifically the WizardExtension section for this:

<WizardExtension>
        <Assembly>Telerik.Reporting.Design.VisualStudio, Version=6.0.12.215, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be</Assembly>
        <FullClassName>Telerik.Reporting.Design.VisualStudio.AddNewReportWizard</FullClassName>      
    </WizardExtension>

And now is working =)

I followed the instructions listed in the original fix, but it's still not working for me.

Open 
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting and locate the Telerik ReportingItem Template Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012.zip.

Originally, this folder didn't even exist for me - I had nothing under IDE, so I created it and copied the files from the attached zip into it. I then opened a VS command prompt as an admin and ran devenv /installvstemplates

I still get the original error when trying to add a new report to my project.

Any ideas?

I figured it out in my case:

There are two reference locations:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\Web\VisualBasic
and
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Reporting

The first path had the bad zip file Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012.zip.  in my case.  Web App.

The solution only mentions the second path above.

Still had to run "devenv /installvstemplates"

Hey Steve.

I have the same problem.

I did everything as instructed. But still the exact same error. As soon as I add a Telerik Report into my C# Project the assembly reference"Telerik.Reporting, version=6.0.12.215" appears. 
Ran the VS Command Prompt as Admin, and tried everything the others reported on this thread. 

This is truly frustrating. Anything else that I could try?

Thanks
Henno

Since buying a licence I found I couldn't add reports to the c# website project I've been working on (it worked fine on the trial version!) I've spent the best part of a day getting to the bottom of this having never previously pondered how VS plugins work, and have now resolved the issue. Part of the problem is that VS picks the template up from different places depending on what language you're using and what type of project you're building. To show this, in windows explorer go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates

and search for Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012.zip. I found 4 versions, under
.\Web\CSharp
.\CSharp\Reporting
.\VisualBasic\Reporting
.\Web\VisualBasic

Each zip file contains a file with the extension .vstemplate which should contain the section
    <WizardExtension>
      <Assembly>Telerik.Reporting.Design.VisualStudio, Version=6.0.12.215, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be</Assembly>
      <FullClassName>Telerik.Reporting.Design.VisualStudio.AddNewReportWizard</FullClassName>
    </WizardExtension>

As far as I can tell, the only one that's correct is the one in .\CSharp\Reporting. So I edited the .vstemplate file in the location relevant to me (.\Web\CSharp\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2012.zip\Class.vstemplate), saved it out to my temp directory, reconstructed the zip file using my edited version and the other file(s) that were in it, and ran devenv /installvstemplates (as administrator).

I can now add reports to my website project, though the wizard doesn't fire up automatically as it does for a web application project for some reason. Having added a blank report I have to open it in design view and select Telerik/Reporting/Report Wizard from the menu.

Thanks to the other posters on this thread. Perhaps Telerik could get a proper fix out for this asap?

Hey Piers

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this still did not resolve the problem for me. I have checked the Class.vstemplate files and it resembles the correct one posted. Installed the vstemplates over again as admin. But still get the error when adding a Report to my project. 

Anyone else still having trouble with this?

Hi Henno,
can you create a new project using the ASP.NET Web Application template and add a report to that? I found that that worked before I did my fix to enable adding a report to a website project.

This kind of fix tho is another great reason why Telerik's gotta get a unified installer up and going, ... something akin to Steam, but for Telerik products.

It is disappointing that something this critical is still a problem 2 months after it was reported.

I feel lucky to have found this before spending any more time trying to figure out what was wrong. As it is I uninstalled and reinstalled before searching for an answer.

It really makes me wonder how many people are using this package?

I'd like to modify the Telerik reporting template... minor changes like the default font, font size, etc., for C# applications, both web and desktop apps. I'm looking at the files contained in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Reporting\Telerik_Reporting_Q3_2011.zip file, but not sure where, or how, to get started. Can you help?

Hi guys,

@Mark: as noted in our last post, the problem has already been addressed in an internal build. Upgrade to resolve the problem.
@Patrick: To get familiar with the Visual Studio templates I would highly recommend the next links:
  • Creating Item Templates - describes how to locate and organize the item templates, and two ways to create them - through the Visual Studio's Export Template Wizard or manually.

Generally our suggestion is to add the report definitions to a class library with target .NET 2.0+ full profile. Check out the demos source code that came with your Telerik Reporting installation.

Additionally you may find useful the Quickstart help article.

I am having this same problem.  No Telerik Report choice when adding a new item into my report project.

I am using VS 2013 with Telerik Reporting Q1 2013, which I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.



With VS 2013 there is no 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\

folder, and no Telerik zip files there.



Any suggestions?

Hello Dan,

You are running Telerik Reporting Q1 2013 which does not support Visual Studio 2013 (screenshot). This is because at the time we released that version of the product, the latest available official version of VS was 2012. We always aim to add support to the product as soon as a new version of VS is released.

A possible solution is to install newer version of Telerik Reporting or to have different versions of Visual Studio installed side-by-side as elaborated in the Installing Visual Studio Versions Side-by-Side article. Then you can create/modify your projects with the supported version of Visual Studio, and if needed, upgrade the projects later to a newer version. Or you can get the latest version of Telerik Reporting, which supports Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 (Professional, Premium and Ultimate Editions).

Regards,
Nasko
