    I need to use Report Designer (standalone) with business objects as data source (Object Data Source).

    I have configured the <Telerik.Reporting><AssemblyReferences> section correctly with a .dll. But I can't make it work with a simple .exe which is also a​ valid assembly (I can see the data source class with JustDecompile).

    Do I need any special syntax in the <​AssemblyReferences> in order to use them with an executable? Is it possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello End,

    Referencing an executable file in the AssemblyReferences element is not supported.
    In general, referencing an executable file in a project is considered bad project architecture. More information on the topic can be found in this thread.
