To use Report Builder, you must install .Net Framework 3.5 on this computer

If you see the error message “To use Report Builder, you must install .Net Framework 3.5 on this computer” on a Windows 7 PC then please do not install .NET Framework 3.5 because Windows 7 comes with it.

 

Most likely you are running IE9. For the temporary solution please watch the video.

    Hi Ming
    Unbelievable that Microsoft not have fixed that. It is a big mystery that the combination of Windows 7, IE9 and SQL server 2008 R2 Report Builder does not work together after all service packs is installed.
    Anyway thank you very much for the tip. It worked perfectly 🙂
