NAV 2009 classic report designer error: supported version of visual studio could not be found

This never happen in the past. But suddenly, all our PCs are unable to load the report designer. I have tried to install Visual Studio 2008SP1 with Report Viewer and NAV 2009 classic end up opening a blank report inside the Visual Studio Report Viewer instead of NAV 2009 Classic Report Designer.

I have search thru this forum and the solutions is to install Visual Studio with Report Viewer, which I have already done as above.

    The issue is resolved. As there is no page for this database, we should use view > section instead of view > layout.
