I created a simple report on three different machines, Windows 7 64bit, Win Vista 64bit and Windows XP 32 bit.  On each report I get the following message:

An error has occured while processing Report '':
Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 0.

I saw the post at http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/reporting/documentation/format-of-the-initialization-string-does-not-conform-to-specification-starting-at-index-0.aspx and I still get the error even though this is a report being used in a winforms project with a separate Report Class.

The report renders perfectly in the design preview for winforms and  html.

this is the code in my code behind
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            Report1 report = new Report1 ();
            ReportViewer1.Report = report;
        }

I'm using the sqlDataSouce, could this problem be caused by using SQLExpress 2008 as the backend database?

Hey, I had this problem in my windows application for a while, At last I realized that u have to add the connection string to your main project's application config (dunno why considering the fact that we have added a reference to it!?)
let's hope this helps u out

Hey K N,
I had the same problem.
I added the connection string on my presentation layer and it is working good.
Thank You
