Installation of Windows Server 2012 Beta WSUS is a easy and straight forward task, which you can do via Server Manager or remotely by adding the required Role.
After I installed WSUS it worked immediately without any issues, but when I tried to open one of the computer reports I got following message.
So I thought no problem. I download report viewer from Microsoft website and I will install it. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=577
But when I tried to install it told me I need .Net Framework 2.0 . But you can’t install .Net framework redistributable bits on Windows Server 2012 Beta , since .Net Framework 4 is already installed. And when you try to install the redistributable files Windows will tell you that you should add it via roles and features. So what to do ?
Here is the solution. You will need the Windows 2012 Server Beta Installation sources. In my case in Drive D:
Starting Command prompt as Administrator
Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /featurename:NetFx3ServerFeatures /Source:D:\sources\sxs
Note: D: is the drive letter of DVD drive on the computer, adjust it accordingly.
after running successful .Net Installation via DSIM you can run the installation of Report Viewer tools without a problem
Now Reports works fine !
