I’ve tried to install the Aspose Words for Reporting (for RS2005) on both Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2003 R2. Both have reporting services installed, they handle rendering extensions, no problem. I have full admin rights on both boxes.
As per the FAQ, I’ve checked all the items, but still it gives me an error about not being able to install it. It doesn’t get further than asking me for the installation folder. Then it sits for a bit, and finally fails with an error message and a code (2869).
Then it tells me to try and install it manually. Instructions on how to do so on your website refer to copying DLL’s I can’t get to (because the installer fails).
Is there a zip file with JUST the binaries available - no MSIs inside it? Alternatively, is there an install log file somewhere that I can use to determine what/where it broke?
Thanks for your query. Please download the zip version of Aspose.Words for Reporting Services 3.4.0 and install it manually by following steps mentioned here. Let me know, If you still face problem.
Thanks Tahir, I will do! I’ll let you know either way!
I successfully installed the Aspose.Words for SSRS by using MSI installer on window server 2003 and windows 7. So there is no issue with MSI installer. Please use the zip version of Aspose.Words for SSRS shared by Dmitry and let us know, If you still face problem.
Thanks Dmitry and Tahir,
Not sure what the problem was with the MSI, must be something to do with the way some of these boxes have been set up…
Anyway, since I managed to get the binaries from a third install elsewhere, and get them installed, you’ll be pleased to know that it works flawlessly, and does exactly what it says on the tin. Very impressive, and very well done! Kudos to your development team!
Thanks again for your prompt responses and assistance!
