You don't have to install entire Ranorex to view the reports. All you need is to copy just these 4 files from the Ranorex\bin directory:


Then simply run the ReportViewer.exe

Another way is to rename rxlog files to HMTL...
rename report.rxlog to report.html
rename report.rxlog.data to report.html.data
Then you can simply open the HTMl file in Firefox, IE or another compatible browser (did not work for me with Opera). There are two drawbacks of this solution...

Renaming will not work with compressed rxzlog, where all report files including images and stylesheets are compressed into single file, which is then automatically extracted on target system. Which means if you want to show the report to your boss, you will have to copy not only HTML and HTML.data file, but also RanorexReport4.xsl/css/png files, and entire [images] directory belonging to your test report. Or you can simply rename rxzlog to zip and extract all necessary report files from this archive.

As for the conversion to PDF, see this discussion:
