ActiveX Viewer outside of Report Server?


Post Author: gouldjw

Is it still possible to invoke the 11.5 (XI) ActiveX Viewer to display reports that are not inside the Report Server database? I have literally thousands of v. 8.5 reports saved in a folder hierarchy that currently run using a simple URL method (e.g. http://rptserver/RptFolder/Report123.rpt?init=actx). Is this method of displaying reports on a web page still available? If so, can I get some examples of how to set this up, because it appears that on my new XI Report Server, the ISAPI extension is not there and I can't figure out if there's a way to pass a URL to openDocument.aspx or something like that. It would be a complete nightmare to have to recreate our current folder structure in Report Server, so please tell me I don't have to do that!
