Missing Microsoft RDLC Report Designer in Visual Studio

Open Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features

  • Select the entry for your version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. In our case, it was Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015.
  • Click the “Change” button on the top bar above the program list. After the splash screen, a window will open.
  • Press the “Modify” button.
  • Select Windows and Web Development > Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools, and check the box next to it.
  • Press the “Update” button on the lower-right hand side of the window.
  • Once the installation is complete, open your version of Visual Studio. After the new .dll files are loaded, Reporting functionality should be reimplemented, and you should be able to access all related forms, controls, and objects.
