SCCM 2012 SP1 – Reports on Remote Admin Console

Hey, here’s Martin again.

Recently i made a post about create custom reports, now I faced the Problem, that I could not open any of my reports through the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Console installed on a remote Client. Right click on a Report and choose Run, nothing happend.
I then checked the SmsAdminUI.log (this log resides inside the Console Installation Folder under “AdminUILog”) and found the following entry:
[1, PID:8712][06/09/2013 21:27:25] :System.IO.FileNotFoundExceptionrnCould not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.rn at Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.AdminConsole.SrsReporting.ReportViewerWindowsForms..ctor()

It seemed, that the Report Viewer is missing. So I checked ConfigMgrAdminUISetup.log and found:
CreateProcess failed (2). szCommandLine=”$SCCMConsoleInstallationDirectoryBinReportViewer.exe” /q, szDirectory=(null)

After installing the Report Viewer, you will find it under $SCCMConsoleInstallationDirectoryBinReportViewer.exe, and restarting the SCCM 2012 console, all reports will run.
