What are the end-user requirements for running the standalone report designer?  

I have the following installed on a new Win 7 machine:
  • .NET Framework 4.0 FULL Profile
  • Microsoft 2010: Primary Interop Assemblies Redistributable

I notice that the designer process runs, but the GUI doesn't draw nor does a window show.  The designer runs fine on my development machine.  What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Kevin,

We've made a test on a vanilla Win 7 machine with .NET 4 installed and the standalone designer works as expected. Please enable the logging for the designer by commenting out the system.diagnostics section in its configuration file and provide us with the log:

<system.diagnostics>
        <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="4">
            <listeners>
                <add name="myListener" type="System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener" initializeData="C:\Temp\Telerik.ReportDesigner.log" />
                <remove name="Default" />
            </listeners>
        </trace>
    </system.diagnostics>

Upgrading from Q3 2012 to Q3 2012 SP1 fixed the issue.

Thanks.

Hello Asutosh,

We provide report designers only for desktop environment. Still if they don't require complex designer you can use standard web controls to collect the end users report requirements and generate the report definition on the fly. The fastest way is to create the desired report layout in the Visual Studio Report Designer and use the code it automatically generated in the .Designer.cs file as a template for dynamic report generation.
