I need to push the RSCLIENTPrint control to desktops where users do not have privilege to execute the cab file when RS tries to push.  I found the RSClientPrint.cab file, but is there an MSI for this?  My active directory manager would rather push an msi if one is available.

Hello everyone! I'm also having the same problem with this. Any scripts out there that will run this as a startup script?

Thanks.

We have come across this same issue - our users do not have administrator access and therefore cannot get the print client control installed. We are using RS 2005 with Service Pack 1.

We found a Knowledge Base article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/280579/en-us) that mentions creating an MSI to install the control, but I can't figure out how to get it working.

I was wondering if anyone found any resolution to this problem. I've also heard of people installing the cab files on the client machines, but there is no mention as to where instructions are for doing something like this.

I'm surprised I didn't find many more gripes about this when searching around. Anyway, it would be good to get all the solutions in one place if possible.

Thanks for your time!

I'll try to take a look at this when I get a break in the schedule next week. If someone in your group has Installshield it's pretty easy to build the MSI, it will extract the CLSID and do the work for you (mostly!).

We never did get the MSI built.  What we did was change a security setting in AD that allowed non admins to install signed updates.  This not only solved this problem, but a couple others that were going on.  Since RS tries to install automatically when someone uses it, actually pushing it wasn't requried.

It's nice to see some solutions coming together. We're not going to make a decision on what to do until at least next week, but our IT Manager has been leaning towards the MSI solution. I have to admit I'm not too familiar with installer programs.

I also found this solution on Experts Exchange, it might prove helpful to others:
1. Find the RSClientPrint.cab file on Reporting Services server
2. Extract all files into a directory on workstation and run regsvr32 on RSClientPrint.dll at command prompt

The problem with this method is that those clients that use it will not be updated in future Service Packs.

After searching for an MSI installer for this without success I was able to build this one which worked for me to enable non-admin users in a managed environment to run the SQL Server Reporting Services RSClientPrint controls in the browser.

My environment is SQL Server 2005 SP2 with Reporting Services.

Attached is a zipped copy of the RSClientPrint.msi file. (RSClientPrint.zip)

Hope it helps someone else. :)

Let me know if it works for you, by replying here to this post.

Hi would this work in a SQL Server 2000 environment ie is Reporting Services independent of SQL version?

thanks in advance

The RS 2005 client print control should work with RS 2000 reports as well. Here is a quick tutorial I found on how to create the .msi file:

thanks!
