I have many Active Reports 13 programs currently on Net Framework 4.8 and am in the process of both upgrading the reports to version 16 and the whole project to Net 6.0.
After doing the upgrade to Active Reports 16 everything looks good and I can view my report designer and see all my controls, etc. However, after I upgrade the project to Net 6.0 the designer will no longer load. Instead I get an error screen stating "Method not found: ‘System.String System.AppDomainSetup.get_LicenseFile()’. From googling this is appears this is an outdated way of getting licensing information that is no longer available in Net 6.0 which makes it look like the Active Reports in my project are still using the old licensing lookup.
I am also getting an issue loading System.Runtime version 18.104.22.168 trying to compile which I believe is trying to be linked by the Active Reports objects, but I’m not sure about that part.
Any help anyone can provide on what might be going on here would be greatly appreciated. I am out of ideas.
