Report Viewer 2008 error: Unable to load client print control

December 19, 2009

One of the updates found in the Report Viewer 2008 control is the ability to print from your browser in local-mode. Frustratingly, the first time your users try it they will be greeted by an error message: “Unable to load client print control”. I’ve read that this is caused by a Microsoft Security Update

To resolve this, I ran the following registry script:
Copy the text below into a file with a REG file extension and double-click it

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{FA91DF8D-53AB-455D-AB20-F2F023E498D3}]

Other ways to fix this issue:  Reporting Services Client-Side Printing and Silent Deployment of ActiveX file.
