    I recently installed Q1 2008 of the Reporting (full version) it works, however the templates are not installed.

    I've look through: 

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\1033\
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\1033\
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\Web\CSharp\1033\
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\Web\VisualBasic\1033\

    But none of these exists - nor can I find such in the installation folder of Telerik Reporting (it would've been nice, if Telerik had installed the .zip version there so us without templates manually could install it).

    Any solutions - I'd rather not reinstall (and can't why that would fix the problem).

    Hello Henrik Brinch,

    Our templates are culture neutral and are placed in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\ for example. Note that 1033 folder is missing and the name of the templates include release name.

    In order to update templates to the current version you can follow these steps:
    1. Close Visual Studio
    2. Unarchive attached templates in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE folder
    3. Run Visual Studio command prompt
    4. Run command devenv /installVSTemplates
    Hope this helps.

    We I followed your step to build the template manually.
    I finally find the template name in the "Add New Item" dialog box.
    But when I confirmed to create the item "Telerik Report Q1 2008"(i.e. Report1.vb) , and following dialog box prompted.

    Either I click "Yes" or "No", the Report1.vb only open in editor mode, and I can't find anyway to open the designer mode.

    Hi Teddy,

    After adding a report item to the web site it is compulsory to select Yes in the dialog which appears. The reason for this is that the report is a .net class and as such should be placed in the special App_Code folder of the web site. To open the report designer afterwards you have to right-click on the report's file and choose View Designer from the context menu.

    Although it is possible to use a report in a web site project we would highly recommend that you follow the best practices and create a class library for the reports. For more information on organizing your solution, please read the Best Practices section.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
