Hi I am getting the following error. Can someone please help me.

I installed the aspoe.pdf and added reference to my project and rebuild the application. and then I got the following error:

The type or namespace name 'ReportingServices' does not exist in the namespace 'Aspose.Pdf' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

Hi Subhash,


Thanks for contacting support.

Did you try referencing Aspose.Pdf.ReportingServices.dll in your project. Also please note that if installer did not perform the installation properly, please follow the instructions specified over following link for information on how you can manually Install to Visual Studio Report Designer

Furthermore, please share some details regarding your working environment i.e. Operating System version, SQL Reporting Services version etc. We are sorry for your inconvenience.

PS, Aspose.Pdf for .NET is a PDF is a component which provides the capability to create and manipulate existing PDF files over .NET platform. However Aspose.Pdf for Reporting Services is rendering extension of SQL Reporting Services.

I cannot find Aspose.Pdf.ReportingServices.dll , I only find Aspose.Pdf.dll file only . So i have downloaded aspose.pdf.dll file and added reference to my project. Are those files the same?

Also I am trying to render the rdlc file to pdf format and right now I am using microsoft report viewer to render the local report. Using reportviewer, the report is taking too long 6 mintues to generate. I reallly want to make this report rendering quick.

If Aspose.pdf supports rdlc file to render it in pdf version then please help me out. Looking forward for the solution.

Thank you!

More info: We are using windows Server 2007 R2 Enterprise OS: 64 bit ,RAM 8GB, For reporting service we have SQL Reporting Service 2008.

I just want to make the rdlc file rendering fast. Please need help ASAP

Hi Subhash,


Thanks for sharing the details and sorry for the delayed response.

Whereas Aspose.Pdf for Reporting Services is a rendering extension of SQL Reporting Services and its provides the feature to convert .RDL file to PDF format either on Report Server or in Visual Studio Business Intelligence project.

Please download Aspose.Pdf for Reporting Services and install over the system running SQL Reporting Services. In case you still face the same issue, please share the source RDL file and also please share further details regarding the error appearing at your end. We are really sorry for your inconvenience.
