The export report to pdf stopped working after upgrading to Q3 2009 Reporting. I found a fix you posted about adding the following web.config to the folder the report viewers are being used.

<?xml version="1.0"?><configuration>
  <system.web>
    <httpHandlers>
      <add path="Telerik.ReportViewer.axd" verb="*" type="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms.HttpHandler, Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=3.1.9.807, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be" validate="true"/>
    </httpHandlers>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

It was working fine until I upgraded to latest release, any idea how to get pdf exports working again? Here my error when exporting.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Hi Dave,

Have you reviewed our documentation concerning the Medium Trust Support of Telerik Reporting? As we see from your stack trace, you're trying to export the report to PDF, and as stated in the latter article:

"The PDF and Excel rendering extensions require UnmanagedCode permission to operate at all times. Take that into consideration when deploying your application and if necessary disable those extensions to avoid security exceptions. For more information refer to Configuring Telerik Reporting help section."

All the best,
Steve

So basically your saying to disable the option to export to pdf? Is there another way to export the reports to pdf in Medium Trust since the site is hosted in godaddy? My whole reason I wanted to go Telerik Reporting route was to export the report to pdf.

Thanks,

Dave K

Hi Dave,

We believe there is some misunderstanding. Even if you disable the export option in the Report Viewer there is no way to render the report in pdf format, because this is limitation of the PDF rendering extension (i.e. it uses unmanaged functions that do not work in medium trust). Namely for the PDF to work in medium trust you should have UnmanagedCode permission. This permission is not allowed in Medium Trust environments by default and needs to be enabled additionally.
We do not believe that corporations like GoDaddy would agree to enable this permission for you, but it does not hurt to ask.
In all fairness, there is no other .NET Reporting product that supports export to PDF in Medium Trust (or at least we're not aware of such).

Best wishes,
Steve
