Hi there,

I am struggling to render a report in PDF in a folder in ssrs. I managed to render the report to my local however the PDF file is not downloading in the folder on my C drive. Any suggestions?

What I have tried:

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
using myNamespace.MyReferenceName;

class Sample
    static void Main(string[] args)
        ReportExecutionService rs = new ReportExecutionService();
        rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
        rs.Url = "http:myLocaladdress";

        // Render arguments
        byte[] result = null;
        string reportPath = "/TEST";
        string format = "PDF";
        string historyID = null;
        string devInfo = @"<deviceinfo><toolbar>False</toolbar></deviceinfo>";

            result = rs.Render(format, devInfo, out extension, out encoding, out mimeType, out warnings, out streamIDs);

            execInfo = rs.GetExecutionInfo();

            Console.WriteLine("Execution date and time: {0}", execInfo.ExecutionDateTime);

        catch (SoapException e)
        // Write the contents of the report to an PDF file.
            Byte[] results = rsExec.Render(format, deviceInfo, out extension, out mimeType, out encoding, out warnings, out streamIDs);
            FileStream stream = File.OpenWrite("C:\\T.pdf");
            stream.Write(result, 0, result.Length);
            Console.WriteLine("Result written to the file.");
        catch (Exception e)

Are you getting any errors?

You're trying to save the file to the root of your system drive. You probably won't have access to do that unless you run your program "elevated" (right-click, "run as administrator"). Try saving to a folder within your user profile instead.
