After you install it, that component will be registered on C:\Windows\assembly folder. If you browse to C:\Windows\assembly using Windows Explorer then you will see custom shell extension view.

Please take note that even though we already install Report Viewer 2010 but VS 2010 Express Edition still not recognized version 10. It still has version 9. We need to copy required library files and add them as project reference.
