After installing the ASP.NET ValidatePath Module, Reporting Services will give you the following error:

Server Error in ‘/ReportServer’ Application.


Security Exception


Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application’s trust level in the configuration file.


Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type System.Web.AspNetHostingPermission, System, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089 failed.

Microsoft has posted KB article #887787 with revised Reporting Services .config files that fixes the issue.

Well, I’m finally blogging – compliments of my friend, John Bristowe, who is kindly hosting my site. A bit of introduction is in order, I suppose. I am an architect, developer, trainer, and jack-of-all-trades working for Quadrus Development Inc. helping clients build software solutions using a variety of technologies, predominantly .NET. My experiences range from smart clients to web applications to full-fledged servers using a variety of connecting technologies including web services, .NET Remoting, MSMQ, sockets, and others. (I tend to get around in the .NET space.) In my wanderings, I’ve solved a variety of development problems and my hope is that by documenting them, it will help others find answers to those same problems. (OK, I’ll admit it. Sometimes it will help me re-find my own solutions months down the road.) So welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy the stay.
