What is the purpose for Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.xml and how does it get created?

Our license we purchased for Aspose.Cells for Reporting was not working in one of our environments. The license file was in the correct location, but we were still receving the warning evaluation page. After a few tests, we saw that the report was not appearing either, instead we received an error, that the following file could not be found: 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10_50.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.xml'. We found the file in our dev environment and copied it into the environment that wasn't working, and then it started working as expected.

The addin we purchased is just a dll file, and the license is a text file (.lic). We need to understand where the XML file comes in, how it is created and what it's used for. The XML file is not in any of our controlled environments and we are not comfortable moving it in without a full understanding of it.

Thanks in advance for the explanation.


Well, when you install Aspose.Cells for RS it will paste Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.xml. The file is generally used for configuring performance parameters, files encryption, digital signatures and other attributes etc. Please see some documents in the section for your complete reference:

Thank you.

Thanks for the quick reply. We didn't install Aspose.Cells for Reporting Services, we just added the dll and the license file to the reportserver\bin folder. So how does the XML file get pasted?

I've added the XML file for reference.




Well, you may place the “Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.xml” file into “…\Reporting Services\ReportServer” folder.

Thank you.
