I am trying to use Report Viewer control in one of my custom web part (on ascx) of SP 2010. As I drop the report viewer control on my ascx it register its assembly on top with assembly version 10.0.0.0. When I deploy my site I get the following error.

Note: I have not added any reference to my project to any of the Report Viewer Assembly.

I even tried to match the version of assembly in web application's web config in handler section but still no effect.

In GAC there are three version of the Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportViewer 8.0.0.0, 9.0.0.0 and 10.0.0.0 I can not uninstall any of those.

The base class includes the field 'ReportViewer1', but its type (Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportViewer) is not compatible with the type of control (Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportViewer).

Please help me resolving this error.

You may want to try cleaning your solution(s) and/or adding the reference again:

Also, do a "find in files" search to verify that there are no vestigial references to either of the two older assemblies (8.0.0.0 or 9.0.0.0):

And because I'm curious:

Note: I have not added any reference to my project to any of the Report Viewer Assembly.

Why not? Do you not see it in the "Add Reference" dialog?

I think I need not to add another reference because I already have Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.Common and Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts added as references and these include Report Viewer Control. –  V.B Jan 3 '13 at 4:59
    
Yes, but the existing references may be pointing to the older assemblies (8.0.0.0 and 9.0.0.0), not 10.0.0.0 (see the threads in those links). Are you using three different versions of the Report Viewer in parallel? –  nsturdivant Jan 3 '13 at 5:09
    
No I am not using 3 versions of RV.And I don't see any reference to older versions either. –  V.B Jan 3 '13 at 5:14
    
I see the problem is conflict between Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms and the same assembly inside Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts.That is why I can not add explicit referece of Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms. –  V.B Jan 4 '13 at 8:16
    
Ah, cool. Glad you figured it out. With the correct reference in place are you good to go? –  nsturdivant Jan 4 '13 at 16:28
