Installation of Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version= broke Site Usage Reporting RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a MOSS-2007 farm on which usage reporting is configured and was functioning correctly. We recently installed a solution that requires the Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version= This required a web.config change to add this control to the HTTPHandlers section. Everything works on the site EXCEPT the usage reporting which throws the following error:

    The Report Viewer Web Control HTTP Handler has not been registered in the application's web.config file.  Add <add verb="*" path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" type = "Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler, Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" /> to the system.web/httpHandlers section of the web.config file. 

    Doing this isn't an option because it breaks the new custom control we just installed. :(

    Is there any other way to get at the usage data and generate a report?

  • What's stopping you using the version of your "new" control rather than the version.

    My reading of the error message says that only the version is compatable with the Report Viewer web control you are using.

  • We needed the AJAX support in order to improve performance when selecting cascading report parameters (option that appear in one drop-down are based on value(s) selected in prior parameters) without having to reload the entire page each time.

    I've found the same information about usage reporting requiring 8.0.

    Is there a way to query the usage data out of the database through SQL Server Management Studio or create an external report against it? I realize this isn't as convenient as accessing the reports from within SharePoint, but that will be OK for now
