I downloaded & installed the latest Telerik Reporting (at the time this thread was posted), and also installed DevExpress 12.2.

I wanted to change my report service from DevExpress to Telerik's one but re-creating every single report from scratch in report designer is too time-consuming. I found some information about DevExpress converter but it was to use DevExpress 8.2.

My WebApp is based on asp.net MVC and published on Azure, I don't know if there is any work-around to have this task done and get it to work properly on Azure, and if there is one how could I do that? Really need help on this.

Hello Arthur,

Currently you can convert only from XtraReports v8.1.6.0, so a possible solution will be first to rebuild the reports against the older version and then to convert them to Telerik Reporting.

The reason why higher versions are not supported is that DevExpress includes the version number in their assembly names which breaks the assembly binding redirect functionality. In this way in order to support all possible versions we have to build a separate converter for each one of them which makes the things quite confusing.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q1 2013? You can get them from your account.
