    I am getting the following message

     

    "Can not start the wizard. Consider restarting Visual Studio. DesignerHost is null."

     

    I have restarted over and over again, including rebooting my machine.

     

    Any help

    Thanks.

    Hello Mark,

    Can you please specify the exact version of Visual Studio you are using and the exact steps you take to reproduce the described outcome. Please also confirm the Telerik Reporting version you are using. Thanks!

    VS: 15.8.4

    Telerik Reporting: 12.2.18.912

     

    1. Open Visual Studio

    2. Create new project (Telerik Win Form)

    3. Add new project to solution (Telerik Report Library)

    At this point, it prompts me for what wizard I want to run, and I choose the Band Report Wizard.

     

    Then I get the message "can not start the wizard. Consider restarting visual studio. designerhost is null."

     

    When I did this on another computer, i was prompt with a "TRUST" screen.  When I clicked that on that machine, it ran the wizard.  So, this looks like a TRUST issue and I am not sure how to fix it.

    Ok, I figured out my issue. My default when I open a class is to open the CSharp Editor and not the CSharp Form Editor.  Once I set this back to open the CSharp Form Editor as default, the wizard worked.  Not sure if this is something you guys can fix on your end or if it's a limitation of Visual Studio.

    Hi Mark,

    I'm happy to hear that you've managed to solve the issue.
    As a side note, by changing the main editor there is no way the wizards to run normally because they work over the designer (they are not any ordinary forms by design).

    Yes, I understand that. Just wasn't sure if there was something the wizard could when it is trying to open the designer besides relying on the "DEFEAULT" behavior of the user interface to open up either the designer or the code. Anyway, I figured out the issue.

     

    Thanks.
