Reporting projects are executed by Dream Report Run-time. The Dream Report Run-time runs as an application or as a service on either a Windows Workstation or Windows Server operating system. While largely invisible to the user, the Run-time Management Console (RMC) provides visibility to the background running process, letting you start, stop, reload and interact with your reports. The RMC user interface shows the list of reports to be executed and the current status for each one. It also enables you to select any report and generate it manually. A feature called the Dynamic Report Generator also lets you generate reports with custom time periods, batch selections, etc. This lets users regenerate past reports at any time.
