Hi,

I'm getting a crash on my install. This has happened straight after the upgrade to Q1 2013.  I can access the code behind for a reporyt and work on that however as soon as I start the designer and click on a report object VS 2008 falls over.  I've got the DEVENV.log file and shown below although it seems very concise for a log file.  Could the "Assembly resolution failed" lines be causing this?

Regards,

Jon

Hello Jon,

Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. We've managed to reproduce it locally and we will do our best to fix it for one of the upcoming internal builds. We've updated your Telerik points as appreciation for bringing this to our attention.

For now our suggestion is to use VS2010 or higher where everything works as expected or downgrade if you do not have any other VS versions.

Many thanks, any estimate of time frame (days or weeks)?

Yeah I reverted to the last 2012 build and all was fine again as I only have 2008 - if it ain't broke why fix it (and pay MS silly money for nothing!)

Have a good weekend.

Regards,

Jon

Hi Petio

I've installed the internal build and it works almost properly now.  

I get an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error when loading a report now.  This happens every time the report designer page is loaded and for both old and new reports.

Once the error has been clicked past I can work on the report with no crashes.  

Is this a known issue?

Regards

Jon

Hello Jon,

Could you please close all opened report definition and try restarting the Visual Studio? 
If the error still appears after that, please send us a sample to debug on our end. Additionally we will appreciate if you record a short video that show the exact steps you follow to reproduce the error. For this you can use a free tool such as Jing.

Hi Petio,

No I came out of VS last night and on going back in the error seems to have disappeared.  So it seems to have started after an upgrade from the Q3 2012 version to the latest internal build and was only present while VS was running following the upgrade.  Worth noting that while it was present I went in to amend the version  number of my project and on the view of the project properties page the same error appeared several times.  OK now though...

Regards,

Jon

Hi,

It is great to hear that the issue has disappeared after restarting Visual Studio. Sometimes this is a necessary step as Visual Studio caches various parts of the project and is not aware of the upgrade process. If you are able to reproduce this problem again, it will be great if you can send us a screenshot, a short video or the entire project to test locally.

All the best,
Chavdar

I am having a very similar problem with VS2008 designer and preview crashing often after Q1 2013 update.  I really needed to upgrade to get the IE 10 support but now don't know what to do.  Should I install the internal build knowing I will need to use this for production purposes and not just dev/testing?

Hello Jim,

Install the latest internal build and see if the problem persists. If it does please open a support ticket where you may attach a VS log and exact steps in order to help us identify the issue. Keep in mind the we will release an official Service Pack release in a week or two.

Kind regards,

I'm running the latest release and haven't had any issues.

I have done a clean solution recently too so give that a whirl and double check that you've upgraded the solution to the new version.

Otherwise I suggest you start a new thread as this one is fixed.....

Cheers

Jon
