The fact that the reporting dll's install to the GAC causes a lot of pain and many wasted hours to upgrade and/or deploy an application with Telerik reporting. I know what steps need to be taken so please don't respond with "here's what you need to do." The problem is that is is very time consuming and has no apparent benefits. Can future versions of reporting work like the other ASP.NET controls and NOT install to the GAC?

Hello rh,

Since Telerik Reporting is not an ASP.NET control or any other component but a much more complex software product it requires corresponding deployment. While choosing the best way to do this we had in mind such things as extensive design time support and Visual Studio's particularities and the ability to have side-by-side versions, Web Site project support, etc. and at the end came up with the GAC solution.

For more information regarding the deployment of an application the use Telerik Reporting please refer to this help topic.

I know this is an old post, but I agree. Once you install to the GAC, my development machine has a major difference from the deployment environments.

I have just spent a nightmare of a time trying to publish my website because Telerik reporting installed in the GAC and I can't seem to get it out of there and installed in the /bin.


I keep removing it from the GAC but when I add reference it just keeps installing back to the GAC.



UGH! Give us the OPTION please! Your GAC installs are never appreciated.

Does it still install into the GAC?
I need to know as I will be deploying to my website and don't need any more headaches than I already have.
Please advise. If it still does install to the GAC, I'll be forced to use Crystal Reports (God forbid!!!)

Hi,

Telerik Reporting provides not only controls for displaying reports with diffrent technologies, but also complex engines allowing developers to utilize Visual Studio designers, which requires GAC installation.

To avoid issues when you work with websites, I can recommend you to copy the needed DLLs from Telerik Reporting Product Folder into the Web Site Bin folder, and reference them from there. When it comes to deployment, publish your work locally, which will help you test the site with IIS and check if assemblies are placed correctly. Finally deploy the published version to the production machine.
