If you’re planning on rolling out Report Builder to end users, you may want to download the stand alone installation from Microsoft. Then you could store it on a file server and send links to anyone that you want to install the Report Builder thick client. Although the links on the Microsoft aren’t very difficult to find, I thought that it would be a good post to put both of the thick client download links in one place. So…here they are.
Report Builder 2.0
Use the Report Builder 2.0 to build ad hoc reports for a SQL Server 2008 instance. More details are contained on the MS url below.
Report Builder 3.0
Only use the below link if your Report Server is the SQL Server 2008 R2 version. More details are contained on the MS url below.
I hope this simplifies your search for the Report Builder links.
