Free Visual Studio Designer for editing Reports in Dynamics NAV 2013 – Part 2

You might remember that I blogged about how to design RDLC reports in NAV 2013 using Microsoft Visual Studío Express Web Developer Edition: http://localhost/wordpress/2012/05/31/free-visual-studio-designer-for-editing-reports-in-dynamics-nav-2013-and-other-options/

Now it seems that Microsoft have removed the “Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package” which before was found here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=115

I have searched high and low, and I cannot find this file anywhere at Microsoft.com. I have even degraded my self to use gOogle search engine, but as always, if I cannot find it on Bing.com I cannot find it on gOogle either.

Lucky I have a backup of the files we need to be able to design RDLC reports in Visual Studio 2010 for free.

So navigate to my Skydrive and download the files here:

In Step 1 you will find the “Visual Studio 2010 Express All-in-One ISO” including SP1

If you have not updated to Windows 8 where we can open ISO files directly, I have also extracted the ISO files for you. You of course don’t need the extrated folder if you can use the ISO file. If downloading from my SkyDrive is to slow you can also download “Visual Studio 2010 Express All-in-One ISO” here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/downloads#d-2010-express

Downloading “Visual Studio 2010 Express All-in-One ISO” from Microsoft.com of course only works until Microsoft decide to remoe the Express version as well.

In Step 2 you will find the “Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package” which I cannot anywhere at Microsoft.com.

Remember that when using the free editor, OfflineReport is not supported.

In NAV 2013 R2 we do not have to go through all these tricks, but much more about this in next blog post.

  2. Hello Claus,
    This is about VS and 2009 R2 I had it working then it stopped – so I went to your sky drive and downloaded Express and Integrated Package – installed those. Still does not work. I am not sure what to do to get Report Writer working for 2009 R2. Any words of wisdom.

    Thank you
