This method should be called prior to calling the Render2 method for a report.

The returned report execution will need to be processed before it is rendered. A new execution is created and the ExecutionInfo2 is returned with a new ExecutionID value.

Reports instantiated with the LoadReportDefinition2 method are temporary. They are not represented in the report server namespace, and are discarded when the server session expires.

Reports instantiated with the LoadReportDefinition2 method are not securable, and may not be shared with other users; the person who created the execution with LoadReportDefinition2 is the only user who may access them.

Subreports and data source references with relative paths are not supported using this method. However, absolute paths to catalog items can be used.
