Setup is missing an installation prerequisite: Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012

Or, The Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 Redistributable is required for this feature. Please close the console before installing this package
Or, WSUS Server report viewer prerequisites on Windows Server 2016
Or, Download Report Viewer for WSUS Server 2016
Or, Download Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012

Descriptions: This is a very common problem you may face after installing a fresh WSUS server when you try to view any detailed report of reported patches or detected client machines. As the error message you have been encountered with is self-explanatory, you have to download and install two major prerequisites in order to be able to view the desired reports.

You can download these prerequisites from the Microsoft’s site given for reference below:

Downloaded setup files (this is how it should look like):











Error Message Reference-1: When you try to view any report, it would ask you to install report viewer













Error Message Reference-2: When you try to install report viewer without having ‘Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012’ already installed, it would ask you to install this component first














Steps: Install these two prerequisites in the sequence given below
1. Close the WSUS Server console if it’s open
2. Install SQLSysClrTypes.msi that you have downloaded already as explained in the description section
3. Install ReportViewer.msi that you have downloaded already as explained in the description section
4. Re-Open WSUS console

Cheers, please write me back if you have any query or feedback on this.
