Install Report Viewer

FineBuild can install and configure the Microsoft Report Viewer component as part of the SQL Server install process.
If you do not want to include Report Viewer in your FineBuild install, then do not download it.

Report Viewer is written by Microsoft. It is a .Net component that allows reports to be viewed from within a .Net application. It was chosen to be included in FineBuild because it is required by the RML Utilities and SQL Nexus.

If you install Report Viewer, you should also install KB2549864. This version of SQL FineBuild does not install KB2549864 and you should install it manually using the download from

Report Viewer home page There is no home page for the Report Viewer
Report Viewer 2010 SP1 download
Do NOT download Microsoft Report Viewer 2008 or any other version, because RML Utilities and SQL Nexus will not work unless Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 SP1 is installed

FineBuild Report Viewer Install

Automated silent installation of Report Viewer is performed by Process Id 4AB and is controlled by the parameters below:
