    Hi @JKEM Agent 007 ,
    Please check your .NET Framework version and the versions of these things below.

    • Microsoft RDLC Report Designer in Extensions.
    • Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl.WinFroms in NuGet Package Manager.

    It is recommended to upgrade to their latest version to avoid compatibility issues.
    If there are any other problems, please let us know.
    Best Regards.
