Is DevExpress XtraReport designer supported?

I tried different versions of DevExpress Components but I was never able to open XtraReport designer. Always got an error: "Failed to build designer surface". No problem in Visual Studio.

Is DevExpress XtraReport designer supported at all?

Hi Flatron64

It could be a known issue. However, I would like to double-check. We'll appreciate it if you can share a sample solution with a repro. One can upload it to our server
