Issue configuring Aspose.Barcode for Reporting Services in Visual Studio 2017 and 2019

I have tried many versions starting with 20.4 and working my way back. The msi will run and recognize my installed Visual Studios and looks like it sets up everything where it’s supposed to be. But when I try to add the barcode to the Toolbox in Visual Studio 2017 or 2019 I get an error that “There are no components that can be placed on the toolbox”

I saw this mentioned for earlier versions of Visual Studio and aspose but not sure I know what the version combination is for me. Or if there might be another problem. Below is my setup:

Aspose.Barcode for Reporting Services 20.4
Visual Studio 2019
SQL Server Data Tools 16.0.11031.2001
SQL Server Reporting Services 15.0.19124.0

Current version supports “VSIX 2.6.1”. You can download and manually install it for VS 2017/2019

“VSIX 2.6.1” Direct link
https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2111531

There were problems in preview mode in VS with “VSIX 2.6.3”. As I see MS developers have fixed something with preview in VSIX 2.6.6. I will check it and add last VSIX 2.6.7 version support.

Thanks. that resolved this issue, although your direct link installed VSIX 2.6.2, but that worked for me.
