SSRS Report in R3 – VS 2012 vs. VS 2010

19 Aug

In R3 environment, when I tried to to edit a report,  i received the following message
“Unable to preview the report, install the Business Intelligence Development Studio feature of Microsoft SQL Server For more information”


AOT > Visual Studio Projects > Select a project > Right Click > Edit


Notice that VS 2010 is still being used as a default one.


AX R3 still needs to integrate with Visual Studio 2010 and therefore you have to have BIDS (Business Intelligence Development Studio). You can use a SQL Server 2008 R2 installation image to install it (it’s one of the components you can select during installation of “A new standalone server or additional components” on the client machine.

    Hai – you do not need VS 2010 if you have AX 2012 R3 CU8. We use SQL 2014, VS 2013, and the new SQL Server Data Tools for VS which is the replacement for BIDS.

    Keep up the good posts.
