    Use the following Document Viewer settings:

    • Add Report Storage - Specifies whether to create a sample server-side report storage. This storage allows users to open report layout files (REPX) from the Reports folder and instances of report types predefined in the assembly.
    • Report Storage Name - Specifies the report storage class name.
    • Session State - Specifies the type of session support to handle requests. Choose Required to enable the Document Viewer to access values stored in HttpContext.Session.
    • Log Errors and Events - Specifies whether to log server-side errors and events related to the Document Viewer functionality to a particular file.

    See Create an ASP.NET WebForms Application with a Report Designer for information on other settings.

Click Create Project to apply these settings to the project.
