Trying to use demo version of 2D Aztec barcodes in SSRS. Get error in Visual Studio preview

I'm trying to create a 2D Aztec barcode in SSRS using VS 2010. Currently I'm using the demo version.

I'm trying to use the tutorial provided for SSRS that creates a Code128 barcode using .NETAssembly.
I've modified the instructions to use the Aztec dll and added System.Windows.Forms reference as well.
I added the code line as an expression to the barcode textbox.

I tried to add the CodeGroup xml code to rspolicy.config in the visual studio folder. I had to modify the example from the tutorial. My snippet looks like this:
<CodeGroup
class="UnionCodeGroup"
version="1"
PermissionSetName="FullTrust"
Description="This code group grants IDAutomationNETAssembly.dll Full Trust permission.">

<IMembershipCondition class="UrlMembershipCondition"version="1"
Url="C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSRS11.MSSQLSERVERReporting
ServicesReportServerbinIDAutomationNETAssembly.dll" />
</CodeGroup>
I am not totally clear about where this should be installed. It says in the tutorial to "put it after the first codegroup...".

I get the following error when trying to Preview:
Failed to load expression host assembly. Details: Could not load file or assembly 'IDAutomation.Aztec, Vesion 2013. 5.0.0.... or one of it's dependencies. Failed to grant permission to execute.

Any ideas of other steps that I am missing for the Aztec or anything I might have done incorrectly?

Thanks,

Renee

The tutorial defaults to Code 128 which uses the IDAutomation.NETAssembly.dll. Because you need to generate Aztec, it requires a reference to the IDAutomation.Aztec.dll. Your Code Group should have a path to the Aztec dll such as:

The Code Group in the PrivateAssemblies config file must also use the IDAutomation.Aztec.dll.


Enter the assembly name in the Code Group Path for the barcode type that you need to generate:

NOTE: 1D barcodes such as Code 128, Code 39, UPC, and I2of5, use the IDAutomation.NETAssembly.

Because you are running the demo, there may be an issue with the barcode causing an Error when the report is deployed. This is documented in this forum posts that resolves the #Error or non scannable barcode issue.#Error or non scannable barcode issue

I accidentally pasted the wrong CodeGroup text in my post above. I did have the Aztec dll referenced, but I finally noticed that I had a small error in the URL. Once I fixed that and rebooted the Visual Studio preview is working nicely. I got a pop up message about the demo mode and once I said OK to that it displayed the barcode.

Thanks so much for the help and the quick response.
