Thank you for reporting this. However, it sounds like the root cause may be a separate issue from the one originally filed here. The original bug crashed on adding a reference, whereas you're seeing a crash when building. Could you file a separate Connect bug for the crash you're experiencing? That way your issue will be tracked by an active bug and routed to the appropriate team.

When I add the MS Report Viewer 2010 references (to assemblies) to the Windows Forms solution, application builds normally.
But when I add a report to the solution and report marked as "Embedded Resource", Visual Studio crashes when I try build the application.
Windows Vista SP2 x64, VS 2010 Beta 2.
Workaround: mark report as [Build Action: None] and copy the report with the application and load from the application location via the reportViewer.LocalReport.ReportPath = "...path to the report...".

Thank you for reporting this issue. I've confirmed that this is the same as an issue we are currently working on and tracking with another bug, so I'm resolving this as a duplicate. We plan to fix this crash for the next release of VS 2010.
Thanks for trying VS 2010 Beta1 and sending your feedback!
