Windows Report Viewer 2012 and MS Reporting Services 2012 Support Lifecycle RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I am using Microsoft Reporting Viewer 2012 and MS Reporting Services 2012 in one of my application and i would like to know what is the support lifecycle for these software.

    Is it same as Windows 2012 R2 server support lifecycle?

    I need this details so that i can plan for upgrade to newer version of MS Reporting Viewer and MS Reporting services.

  • The report viewer and reporting services you describe are a part of SQL Server 2012, and not Windows Server 2012 R2.  For understanding support you'd need to look at SQL and whether newer versions are supported on your chosen Windows Server platform. 

    Upgrades to a newer version of SQL Server are supported on Windows Server 2012 R2.

    Check out this documentation on upgrading to SQL Server Reporting Service 2016, as a good example of what you'll need to know before doing the upgrade.


    Hope this helps,
