SSRS Print problem on client machines

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


Initially after deploying SSRS 2005 report on server, the client machine could not avail print functionality because of the error "Unable to load client print control". Inspite of allowing ActiveX installation, the print functionality was not working.

Googling on this issue I found that rsclientprint.dll needs to be registered in C:\Windows\system32.

After successfully registering this dll, print functionality started working on some machines. However on some machines it started giving the error 'Error loading resource library.(0x8007007E)'.

Now I am stuck as to what needs to be done. Any help is appreciated.

Problem to obtain client IP on web service



I'm having problems to obtain the client IP on web service. Here's my scenario:

One server with Windows 2003, hosting the web service using .Net Framework 2.0, with IP and host name ServerTransaction.
Other server with Windows 2003, hosting a web application using .Net Framework 2.0, that consuming the web service on  ServerTransaction, with IP and host name ServerApplication.
Many other computers on the local network (IPs:,,, ...) acessing the web application on ServerApplication.

On the code of the web service I've tried to use HttpContext.Current.Request.UserHostAddress or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") or HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FORR"), but always I can only get the IP of ServerApplication (

Any idea or tip?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

A connection could not be made to the report server - Problem deploying an SSRS report from Business

I’m having trouble with what seems to be a common issue for people, regarding deployment of an SSRS report from Business Intelligence Development Studio. Unfortunately none of the solution I have seen posted here (and elsewhere) have been able to help me so far.   Two of my collegaues can both deploy with no problem, and I am using exactly the same Target destinations as them (TargetDataSourceFolder, TargetReportFolder, TargetServerURL).   I have posted the error message below, which from my basic understaning would indicate, I think, a security issue (perhaps something local to my PC, or user account)   Has anyone experienced this particular issue who might be able to help?   Best wishes, Jamie TITLE: Microsoft Report Designer ------------------------------ A connection could not be made to the report server http://turpin-net.turpin-bg.local/Reportserver. ------------------------------ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=utf-8', but expected 'text/xml'.

SSRS Migration and Client impact

We currently have SSRS 2005 and will be migrating to SSRS 2008 (not R2) very soon. Most of our applications are VS2005 ASP.NET Web applications. We do not have any plans to upgrade the applications in the near future. The applications use different methodologies to access the SSRS reports. Some use the URL Access method - build a url with all parameter data (and PDF rendering extension) and open the url. Some use a report viewer control working in the Server mode (Remote mode) to display the server reports. Some use the ReportingService2005.asmx web service to render reports as pdf/excel How the clients could be impacted in each of these scenarios, if we just upgrade the SSRS from 2005 to 2008?

SSRS Client Access

Hi, I have evaluating SSRS, and somehow I am quite confused. Please tell me if I am wrong in the basic understanding. To create a new report by the user, the client has to be installed with the Report Builder software, and must have access to the database server directly? Is there no thin client, say a web page available to allow the users to create a report (choosing of fields) like that of the Report Builder Software? Please help to answer this fundamental questions. Thank you.

SSRS Table Header working differently in and out of print layout

Please help. This is bizarre and seems like a bug to me. Using a table in SSRS, I have a details row, with a parent group and finally a header row.  For my header row, I am referencing a particular cell in the parent group. I am doing this so that i can have the header row repeat on each page of the group. This works fine when I'm not in Print Layout mode. However, when i switch to print layout mode, or print the report itself, the data that is presented on the screen is different then what is presented when not in print layout mode. WHAT THE F*!@!?? I've been battling this for a while now and i'm at my wits end. Has anyone else experienced different results from when you are in print layout mode as opposed to being in print layout mode?

SSRS 2008 R2 Problem understanding View State Validation steps

Hi, Sorry, but I have some problem understanding this steps. Please help me to understand this.  Pasted from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281307.aspx?lc=1033 How to Configure View State Validation To run a scale-out deployment on an NLB cluster, you must configure view state validation so that users can view interactive HTML reports. You must do this for the report server and for Report Manager. View state validation is controlled by the ASP.NET. By default, view state validation is enabled and uses the identity of the Web service to perform the validation. However, in an NLB cluster scenario, there are multiple service instances and web service identities that run on different computers. Because the service identity varies for each node, you cannot rely on a single process identity to perform the validation. To work around this issue, you can generate an arbitrary validation key to support view state validation, and then manually configure each report server node to use the same key. You can use any randomly generated hexadecimal sequence. The validation algorithm (such as SHA1) determines how long the hexadecimal sequence must be. Generate a validation key and decryption key by using the autogenerate functionality provided by the .NET Framework. (Well, how to generate Validation key using .Net Framework?) In the end, you must have a singl

OutOfMemory Exception on 64 bit machines (Interop Problem)

Hello Our application needs to display the printer settings dialog. This works fine in 32bit windows systems, but results in a System.OutOfMemoryException at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.AllocHGlobal(IntPtr cb) when it is running under 64bit (Windows 2008 Server). The problem can easily be reproduced in a winform app. You need to set the platform target to x86 to experience the problem.Unfortuantely, our application needs to be built fox x86 for other reasons. Any ideas why this happens?

SSRS problem with passing multiple parameter values via URL %2c

Hi, I have a problem with passing multiple parameter values from one report (A) to another report (B).   For example I built a URL string in report (A) with the parameters like &Parameter1=1&Parameter1=2. As soon as I click on that URL the URL parameters look like &Parameter1=1%2c2 and the parameters don’t getting populated on report (B).   If I change the parameter in the URL to &Parameter1=1&Parameter1=2 and execute the URL manual the parameter on report (B) getting populated properly.   Is there a way to disable the coding like %2c (comma) or is there another solution for it?   Thanks
