So we noticed that the print button in our ReportViewer (Version=10.0.0.0) is gone after upgrading to IE11.
This is how it looks like in IE10:
After doing some research, we found that other people are also reporting this problem (i.e.
here), but did not find a solution yet. Using the compability mode would be a workaround option, but is not a viable/fitting solution for clients.
Did anyone figure out how to fix this?

Manually place a button
and call Reportviewer Print function.
Please close thread if you get solved.

Thats what I did to work around that problem - but having that print button would be nice.
I can't be the only one noticing this?

ReportViewer relies on ActiveX for client-side printing which only works in IE. However, in IE10 or greater under Win8 Metro or in default rendering mode, ActiveX is not supported. That's why print button is not available. The only way to get it back is
by using the following meta tag to force IE to render as v9:
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=9" >
If you do not want this approach, then you can take a look at this
article that allows cross-browser RDLC printing by adding a custom Print button to ReportViewer toolbar and use that one or implement it by yourself.

Unfortunately, your suggestions did not work.
...showed no effect at all.
Is there a solution to get the original button work under IE11?

Where did you put that meta tag? It should be placed inside the <HEAD> as the first line.

I used the Compatibilty view settings
and the print button appeared.
