SSRS 2005 barcode does not render barcode in SSRS (it does in VS 2005)


We have installed the product on a dev machine and created reports that render barcodes on the dev machine (in VS 2005). When we installed the barcode generator on Windows Server 2003 R2 running SQL Express Advanced (with SSRS2005) and deployed the reports, the barcodes are not rendered.

We get an error in the event viewer (error 108) stating SSRS could not load the barcode extension. But nothing else. Any ideas?

Thanks for considering Aspose.

We will check the compatibility with the SQL Express edition and get back to you.

Could you please also make sure that the config files of SSRS have been updated correctly. You may refer to http://www.aspose.com/documentation/ssrs-rendering-extensions/aspose.barcode-for-reporting-services/install-manually.html for details.


I have also reproduced the bug at my end using SQL 2005 Express Advance and also logged the issue in our bug tracking system (ID: 18429). We will inform you when it gets resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience.


According to our analysis, the custom report items are not supported in SQL Express Advanced Reporting Services, therefore the barcode cannot be rendered in deployed reports using the Aspose control.

However, there is an alternate way to render the reports to SQL Express, by using the Image control from the Visual Studio toolbox and writing the code in Report properties. Please refer to http://www.aspose.com/documentation/ssrs-rendering-extensions/aspose.barcode-for-reporting-services/how-to-display-barcodes-in-report-header.html for more details.
