I just downloaded Telerik Reporting and also the Telerik controls for WPF.  The WPF controls are 2013.3.1204.40.  The reporting controls are Q3 2013 7.2.13.1016.  When I attempt to open a report, the Telerik ReportViewer constructor throws an error:

Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Windows.Controls, Version=2013.3.1016.40, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)":"Telerik.Windows.Controls, Version=2013.3.1016.40, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7"

Well of course it can't load the 1016 version since I have 1204.  I downloaded these directly from the site.  Why are the versions out of sync?  How can I fix this?

Update - Although I messed with this for quite some time without a solution, as soon as I posted the question I figured out the binding redirects and got this working.

But this seems like a very bad solution to me.  I'll get errors next time I update.  Can't the reporting controls be built so that they don't require a specific version?  Or some other solution?

Hello Paul,

The WPF ReportViewer uses RadControls for WPF in its template, still Telerik Reporting does not require you to purchase both products. The viewer of a specific major Q release is built against the corresponding release of the WPF assemblies, and we ship trial version of these WPF assemblies, which are internally unlocked when used with the viewer.

In cases you use both products, the above approach allows you to upgrade them separately in the frame of a Q release by adding the binding redirects to the configuration. Then on upgrade you will need to run both Upgrade Wizards and manually edit the configuration file with the bindings.

Yes I have just got this issue.  I am still evaluating Telerik.

Things like this, it would be nice to have some information on the Telerik site.  I guess using WPF and Reporting in the same application is not uncommon.  I have never done any Binding redirects, now I have to quickly put something together.  Not good when under pressure.

Can we please make this information easily accessible Telerik.

Thanks

After some digging around, and excruciating trial and error, I finally sorted this.  Add the following to the App.config file:

<configuration>
  <runtime>
    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
      <dependentAssembly>
        <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Windows.Controls"
          publicKeyToken="5803cfa389c90ce7"
          culture="neutral" />
        <bindingRedirect oldVersion="2013.3.1016.40" newVersion="2013.3.1204.45" />
        <publisherPolicy apply="no" />
      </dependentAssembly>
    </assemblyBinding>
  </runtime>
</configuration>

Hope this helps someone else!

Hi Aung,

You can use the WPF ReportViewer - How to: Add report viewer to a WPF application or Manual Setup.
You can also directly print and export Telerik reports via ReportProcessor.
