SQL Server 2016 SSRS Datasets RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a virtual machine running SQL Server 2016 RC3, logged into http:/, with a valid Data Source connected to AdventureWorks2016CTP3 database. When I'm in the same folder with the data source, doing + New > Mobile Report will launch the Mobile Report Builder.  

    But when I try to + New > Dataset, the "We're opening Report Build..." dialog is displayed but nothing happens. 

    Is this feature not working or is there another way to make a Dataset?  I assume the Mobile Reports require a Dataset to get data from, but without being able to make a Dataset, I'm not sure how to proceed.

  • I'm also running 2016 RC3, but am not seeing the issue. When I click on New -> Dataset, the dialog box shows, followed by Report Builder launching. Can you check in Task Manager if RSReportBuilder.exe is already running perhaps and kill it if it is? If that's not the case, you can manually launch Report Builder and create the dataset through the tool and save it to your report server.
