Luke, that's very helpful! Thank you for posting the link, as I myself was wondering about a few of the configuration options and how they need to be set.

Thanks again.

Yeah I'd been searching for just such a solution for a while now. Just found it today, it tests out pretty good. nice thing is that it's already an MSI so SMS can handle the privilege elevation and such for you, just push it out with a /qn and you're all set.

I'm just wondering if I'll have to regenerate it everytime I apply a SQL patch. I'm thinking it's more than likely, 'tis why I put the bit in about remove previous versions...

-Luke.

I don't think that the RS Client Print control is affected by SQL Server updates. I think it pretty much stays the same as it is just an ActiveX control to enable printing in the browser.

cool man...we are looking for this kind of stuff.
I had tried installing SP2 update of SQL Server 2005.
Then tried registering the dll from cab file. but no help.

It used to show "unable to load client print" when
registering dll and prompt to install control
when deregistering it.

Did you try the create your own MSi bit or were you just registering the dll?

I've found that to be the one that works the best in our environment. Of course, if you're already getting the prompt to download and install it would seem you already have admin rights so the point is somewhat moot. Just download it and install and you'll be all set.

Care to be a bit more specific?

Creating a custom installer deployed via SMS to my non admin users seems to be working fine in my environment...

I have found that several patches I have applied to SQL lately (SP and Cum Upds) will update the RSClientPrint dll. This is unfortunate as it also appears to never be backward compatible so we have to push an MSI (that we must create ourselves) to all desktops at the same time we apply a SQL SP to the server. We can't push the MSI early to have the desktops prepared or they break in the currrent environment. This is combersome and I wish MS would correct. We set the package set to uninstall the old one and install the new one.

yes unfortunately that is a requirement. One would hope MS would come up with a better solution. Fortunately, for my organization at least, is that we're somewhat small and the workaround of saving a Pdf and then printing is acceptable for my user community until the patches are distributed. Within a day or so we are able to have approx 90% of our machines patched, so the majority of them never notice.

You may want to work with your systems management/patch management folks and see if they have the availability to use Wake on Lan to wake up the workstations during non-production hours to ensure patch delivery overnight while the workstations are not in use. Or you can ask them to set up a larger number of repositories and to push that particular update separate from your monthly update cycle. Since it's not very large, and it doesn't require a reboot, it should be easy to distribute the same day you patch your servers.

\Im no guru or anything so here goes. Bare with me.

Got Sql server 2005 running reports, I am doing this all over VPN since I don't have access to the box myself.

I searched online for error code: "Cannot load print client," got a lot of returns on pages and what not. Normally I have seen this error before and to fix the issue i just normally go back to the page and re install the RSPRINTCLIENT and it all seems to work fine.

Well on one of the PCs with admin privileges set, somehow still get the same error.

Now what I did was download the .MSI that was available a couple of posts back (thank you by the way for your effort) and tried to use that. The MSI didn't work, upon running a report and clicking PRINT same error. Went and installed Report Viewer 2005, re ran the MSI to remove all RSCLIENTPRINT files, and then reinstalled, reboot and same issue, same error.

Now reading on : http://www.kodyaz.com/articles/client-side-printing-silent-deployment-of-rsclientPrint.aspx

I figured I can install it manually and I'm not going to update any time soon so it's ok for me. Well I don't have access to the box to get the RSPRINTCLIENT.CAB file to extract it. Using LESSMSI i extracted the above mentioned MSI file to get all the .dll and .rll files and installed per directions. Basically I added all the files to c:\windows\system32, only two i didnt add was gidplus.dll and .inf file.

RSClientPrint.dll
RSClientPrint_1028.rll
RSClientPrint_1031.rll
RSClientPrint_1033.rll
RSClientPrint_1036.rll
RSClientPrint_1040.rll
RSClientPrint_1041.rll
RSClientPrint_1042.rll
RSClientPrint_1043.rll
RSClientPrint_1046.rll
RSClientPrint_1053.rll
RSClientPrint_2052.rll
RSClientPrint_3082.rll

Ran this code: regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\rsprintclient.dll

Get "DLL Registered Sucessful"

Went and restarted the browser. Still no luck.

I have tried every possible combination. Even went into IE, added the website I was on into trusted sites, enabled every ACTIVEX function you can find, and still got the same problems.
