We are attempting to utilize the Aspose PDF rendering extension to render SSRS reports to PDF. Since we are using Visual Studio 2010, our .rdlc files and the SSRS assemblies correspond to SSRS 2008 R2. Also, since we are rendering in local mode, we are utilizing the approach posted in the Aspose documentation, which uses .NET reflection to force the Aspose PDF render to be available.
However, when the render executes, the following exception is thrown (top-level exception listed with inner exceptions following on subsequent lines):
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.
Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.LocalProcessingException: An error occurred during local report processing.
Unable to cast object of type 'Aspose.Pdf.ReportingServices.Renderer' to type 'Microsoft.ReportingServices.OnDemandReportRendering.IRenderingExtension'.
Do you have any information on this issue? We are hoping to utilize this renderer and the default SSRS PDF renderer has multiple show-stopping issues for us. We will consider purchasing the component if we can get this working. Thanks.
