Report Builder will not launch

    Question

  • I am having problems launching the Report Builder. I click the button and nothing happens.   I did see the other suggestions about re-installing the .NET 2.0 Framework but that did not help.   I tried to launch it directly from the address bar and I am getting the same reponse as when I click on the Report Builder button. I can access the Report Builder from other machines and it works fine.  I did just recently install IE 7 and I tried to uninstall it and go back to IE 6 but I got the same results.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Tim

  • Does navigating to http://localhost/ReportServer/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilderLocalIntranet.application work? Try adding localhost to trusted sites.

  • I tried using this link http://localhost/ReportServer/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilderLocalIntranet.application and adding it to trusted sites and it did not work.  Maybe I have some corrupted or missing files on my machine.  Does anyone know what files I could possibly delete to make Reporting Services think I have never launched the Report Builder and have it re-update my machine.

  • Hello,

     

    We are experiencing this exact same situation as well. ReportBuilder will not launch when users click on the “ReportBuilder” icon, nor will it launch when browsed to directly.

     

    Has a solution been found or can anyone provide insight on how to further troubleshoot?

     

     

    Regards,

  • Has anyone received an answer for this?  I can launch using the url, but I cannot by clicking on the button.  To make matters worse, clicking on the button used to work in the past.

  • Hi All,

     

    After spending much time researching, we were able to come to a successful resolution as outlined below.

     

    1) Remove every .NET Framework from the machine.

                We had previously not removed all versions

    2) Download & Install the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Redistributable Package (Which can be obtained directly from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=10CC340B-F857-4A14-83F5-25634C3BF043&displaylang=en)

     

    If this solution does not work for someone, please post! I'd be more than willing to help you troubleshoot.

  • Microsoft's SSRS Gurus Aditya Hari and Vijay Krishnan provided the fix below which resolved the Report Builder issue I was fighting with for weeks.

    Rename or Delete the IEXPLORE.EXE.CONFIG file found in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer

    Retry running report builder.  

    http://yourserver/ReportServer/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder.application

    I tried removing/reinstalling .Net Framework but that didn't fix the problem.

  • I have .Net FrameWork 4.0 version installed.

    Browser IE 9

    I had the same problem when launching Report builder,it says to install .Net Framework 3.5.

    As adviced by Teo Lachev i tried the following and its working

    Open the Browser->click on 'Tools'->select 'Compatability View Settings'->enter 'localhost' then click Add->Close

    Then try clicking reportbuilder icon

    Hope it works for you aswell
