Thanks for the response. We are evaluating this product and before we can decide to buy it we need to make it work. I already did all what it required on the VS.Net set up and we have all the requirements. do I need to have this installed on the SSRS server to make it work locally on my VS? I just wanted to generate a simple report with a barcode.
While we setup the environment which might take some time, are you using latest version of Aspose.BarCode for Reporting Services v19.8? If not, kindly try it from here as we did fix issues to work with VS2017/VS2019 and SSRS 2017 versions in it.
Well, we Investigated the problem with Aspose Barcode for Reporting Services in preview mode in VS2017/VS2019.
We found issue(s) with some run-time Reporting Services interfaces. We need to experiment and investigate Aspose Barcode code (internally) thoroughly and incorporate other enhancements. I am afraid, the process would take some time.
Once we have any new information, we will share it with you.
VSIX 2.6.1(SSRS 15.0.1528.0) work after rebuilding Aspose.BarCode libraries with current SSRS libarires. This already done in BARCODEREP-88 and could be released in Aspose.BarCode 20.2 February release.
SSDT 15.9.2(SSRS 15.0.1395.0) works well with Aspose.BarCode 19.8 for Reporting Services.
In the end of February we will release Aspose.BarCode 20.2 version which will support VSIX 2.6.1. In this version (VSIX 2.6.1) must be fixed (be Microsoft release notes) problem with SSRS rebuilding libraries with new versions.
Thank you for the update. We managed to run our report with the barcode locally but with VS2010. The report on VS2017 cannot be executed locally but when we placed on our SSRS server they actually showed the barcoded correctly. So we will use it that way and wait for the fix at the end of the month to make it work 100% on VS2017.

It works with VS2017 now(SSDT 15.9.2). End of month fix will be for VSIX 2.6.1 (you have to reinstall it manually). Main difference between SSDT 15.9.2 and VSIX 2.6.1, VSIX can be installed slightly easier.
Last version SSRS(SSDT 15.9.3/VSIX 2.6.3) cannot be fixed in any way (VS2017/VS2019) because it is internal SSRS run-time library bug. We have to wait for fix from Microsoft.
