Report Builder & RSReportDesigner.config

  • I installed SQL Server Report Builder 2008 2.0.  When I try to connect to a SharePoint List, I get this error:

    The selected data extension SHAREPOINTLIST cannot be loaded. Verify that the selected data extension is correctly registered in RSReportDesigner.config, and is installed on the client for local reports and on the report server for published reports.

    When I research the file RSReportDesigner.config, it looks like it is installed in the Visual Studio directory (Link).  I don't have Visual Studio installed on my laptop.  I don't have SQL Server installed on my laptop either.  Is it possible to run Report Builder without these programs installed?  Or, how can I connect Report Builder to a SharePoint List?

    My SharePoint administrator says that I need to use Report Builder 2008 2.0 due to the version of SharePoint running.  A newer version won't work.
