Hello everyone, I'm working with VS2022, C# WPF and I want some reports using RDLC, I have already downloaded Microsoft RDLC designer 2022. I have already made the first design of the report. But in my XAML window when trying to use ReportViewer
<WindowsFormsHost Height="410" Width="749">
            <rdlcreport:ReportViewer x:Name="_reportviewer" />

it gives me the following error: ReportViewer is not supported in WPF projects.
How can I solve this? Thanks to all.

What I have tried:

I've search for days in internet for examples and I have found nothing.

It seems that the newest feature of RDCL has been released in the VS Marketplace since vs2022 v17.1 as per MICROSOFT.

You can either go to THIS link to download the vsix file or you can do the following -
1. Open VS2022
2. In your top menus, go to Extensions
3. Select Visual Studio Marketplace
4. Search for Microsoft RDLC Report Designer 2022
5. Select download
6. Close VS2022, your file will be downloaded and installed when you re-open VS2022

If you are having issues, please see THIS how-to tutorial video.

You will find a HOW-TO CREATE a RDCL REPORT at this link with all the sample code needed.

Thanks Andre for your time and help, but to be exact, the problem is when I try to put the ReportViewer in the XAML window:
<windowsformshost height="410" width="749>
<rdlcreport:ReportViewer x:Name=" _reportviewer"="">

Show me this message error: "ReportViewer is not supported in WPF projects." How can I solve this? Thanks to all.

Only a pleasure. Please mark as solved, thank you.
I've found that the problem is here in the XAML code:


I have instaled Microsoft RDLC Report Designer 2022 without problem, but the files Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common.dll and Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll are not in my project.

I uninstalled and reinstalled RDLC for 2022 and it seems to have fixed the problem.
