Hello, I'm reporting this bug for the 2'nd time. This bugs goes from VS 2005 and still exists in VS 2008 and if not corrected will exist in VS 2010.

-------- THE PROBLEM ---------------
When i'm publishing a web site that has any *.rdlc files and in "Publish Web Site" dialog i UN-CHECK "Allow this precompiled site to be updatable" checkbox, all *.rdlc files are build into resource and original file content is replaced with message "This is a marker file generated by the precompilation tool, and should not be deleted!".
When a web site is published that way, none of the *.rdlc files can be opened by Microsoft Report Viewer control as it doesn't support the precompilation behavior.
The only workaround now is to replace the published *.rdlc files with original ones from development environment. And this workaround gets realy ugly if website has complex folder structure and a lot of *.rdlc files.
