Conflicts of Report Builder calls NAV 2015 / NAV 2013 R2

After having installed NAV 2015 (with brings with it the new report builder from SQL Server 2014 instead of Version 3 which was part of the NAV 2013 R2 installation) it is no longer possible to open the layout of a report in the NAV 2013 R2 Development Environment because this error message pops up.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment
An error occurred when opening the report designer. A supported version of Report Builder could not be found.
Has anyone found any means of using the report builders of both environments simultaneously?

    You can uninstall the SQL 2014 Report Builder and re-install the SQL 2012 Report Builder. It will work with both NAV versions.
    There are no bugs - only undocumented features.

    Thanks, that seems to work.
    Another solution is to update NAV 2013 R2:
    As I just learned, NAV 2013 R2 Cumulative Update 11 (Build 37799) will work with the new Report Builder 3 for SQL Server 2014 (also known as Report Builder 12).

    Thanks, that's good to know.

    These cross-version and even cross-build conflicts are driving me crazy. I oversee our internal development systems. Prior NAV versions live quite well together. I support NAV 2009 R2 all the way back to NAV version 4 SP3 on the same platforms. But these never versions are creating a real problem. As it seems almost the each new update creates more conflicts.
