I'm trying to create a report which needs to be saved as PDF. I'm using Microsoft Report Viewer and RDLC to generate the report which will be exported to PDF. The data comes from a webservice and no database involvement is there. The issue i'm having is
the RDLC is not displaying the images, only a red color cross is shown in the report viewer. Since the webmethod returns the path of the image, in RDLC the source = "External" and the complete URL is mentioned in the Value property. Also, EnableExternalImages
property of report viewer set to true.
Any ideas why the Images are not showing up in the report viewer.
Using : VS2008 (Target Framework 2.0), C#, Report Viewer Version 9.0
I've also tried this on VS2010 (Targer Framework 4.0), c# and Report Viewer 10.0 with same result.

please make sure you are getting images from a virtual directory incase of External resource.

The images are not in the server where the web app. will be hosted, they are in a different location. A third party provider, which sends the url of the images only. Physically, the images are available at the third party's end and are accessible from the
browser. Much like this :

this may be a permission issue and you may have to configure your reporting services configuration manager, for more info refer the link below:

Thanks for the suggestion. But i'm not using any SQL instance. It's just a web application in VS 2008 solution where i've added one report item. All the data to be displayed including the image URLs are fetched from the web service. Should i still try to
configure the SSRS configs.?

yes, you should try to configure the ssrs as well
