Hello Jason,

The Telerik Reporting service is a normal WCF service and it can be started within a Windows Service. Check out the attached sample and following help articles:

Just make sure for your Windows Service project that you are not using the .NET Client Profile Framework.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,
Thanks for your reply.

The solution which was you provide is working fine. But it will only work in IIS hosting. I will publish the web project and keep into wwwroot and then change the url like http://localhost:8080/ReportService/ReportService.svc it will work fine. But when I host the service as a Windows Service it will not work.

There are some client access policy file issue.

I am sending screen shot.
I have clientaccesspolicy file in bin, wwwroot etc.

How can i send you source file?

Please look into it.

Take a look at that: http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/self-hosted-telerik-reporting-wcf-service.html
There is a working code sample.
Notice the following endpoint (sounds like you might be missing it): 
 <endpoint address=""
                  binding="webHttpBinding"
                  behaviorConfiguration="WebBehavior"
                  contract="Telerik.Reporting.Service.IClientAccessPolicy"/>

Hi,
Can anyone to solve my problem then I move forward.

Currently my report not show with windows hosted service. And one more thing if I host the ReportService.svc in IIS it will not work when set ReportServerUri from code.
Like :
repViewer.ReportServerUri = new Uri("http://localhost/TestApp/ReportService.svc");
repViewer.Report = "TestReportLibrary.SummaryReport, TestLibrary";

It will only when set in XAML file.
like :
<telerik:ReportViewer Grid.Row="1" x:Name="repViewer" telerikControls:StyleManager.Theme="{Binding SelectedItem, ElementName=ThemeSelector}" ReportServiceUri="../ReportService.svc"  />

But my main requirement is I want to host the service as windows service.
Another problem is I am unable to print/save the report when I click Print/Save icon in toolbar nothing will happned. But it will work on your demo.

Please if it is possible let me know asap.

Thanks in advance

Hello Chandan,

You can find attached a sample application created based on the How to: Create Self-Hosted Telerik Reporting WCF Service help article.

On your other approach, assure that the service is reachable at the provided address.

If you need further help, open a support ticket and send us your details there.

Hi,

I faced a new problem in Telerik report viewer toolbar.
In Export button there is some items are missing. Like XPS, Excel Worksheet, PowerPoint Presentation etc.
I have installed XPS, MS Office in my development & hosting machines and both machines are Windows7 but in my development machine Telerik reporting trial version is installed.

In my development machine all are showing and works fine.
But in hosted machine those are missing.

After googled there is some suggestion ask to use Medium Trust but not understood how to use.

Please let me know how to fix this issue.

Thanks
Chandan

Hello Chandan,

Please double-check if all needed assemblies are deployed correctly and are referenced from the right location since there is another installation on the host machine. Notice some rendering formats depend on additional assemblies which also has to be included in the distribution: Rendering Extensions.
