    Telerik Team,

    I need to please know how to handle this, and if not, possibly request that you make the changes necessary to help out.

    I have 40+ website currently using the Reporting module with 10+ sites being added every month. I estimate this to grow to several hundred soon, perhaps at least a thousand by this time next year.

    My problem is this, every time you release a new version of the Reporting tool, I have to manually edit each of these web.config files to adjust the version number. I do not have to do this for the other Telerik controls, I am able with them, to just leave the version number off. Can you give us this option too? I'm fine with you checking that the assembly is registered, obviously that must be done, but can you please not check the version in the web.config.

    This is becoming a major labor intensive issue every time you release a version or service pack. Is there a reason for including the check of the version number? Can it rather be like the other Telerik controls and leave that off? I really don't want to have to adjust the web.config files if necessary. And I do realize that I could write a script to do this, but again it seems like an unnecessary check to begin with.

    Your feedback on this would be most appreciated.

    Hi Clyde,

    You definitely have a point here and we would investigate and consider this for implementation.

    Your Telerik points have been updated for bringing this to our attention.

    Sincerely yours,

    Will this be implemented soon? It is making it very inconvenient to update multiple web servers with the latest version of Telerik Reporting.

    This problem has been resolved in Q3 2009 release. The handler registration should look like this:

    <add path="Telerik.ReportViewer.axd" verb="*" type="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms.HttpHandler, Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms"/>

    and the viewer registration on the page:

    <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Assembly="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms" Namespace="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms" %>

    This would work only in case you have a single version of the reporting assemblies in bin.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
