Invalid License Data - Visual Studio

If you tried to open the report designer using Visual Studio and got the below error? 
Error it self says "Reinstall is required", but it never says what you need to reinstall. Is it Microsoft Visual Studio, or Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell? 

I tried re-installing Microsoft Visual Studio, then tried installing Visual Studio 2010 Shell, but non of those didn't worked. 

So what we should install or reinstall to fix the invalid license data issue. 
Non of the above, you need to install "SQL Server Data Tools
Click here to get the link to to download

Once you install it (administrator mode), you will no longer have the issue of operning the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Reports using Microsoft Visual Studio.

Please provide your feedback with a comment.
Thank you and Regards,

  1. Thanks for this tip. It solved my problems!

    Strange thing is that the reinstall of SQL Data Tools failed but after that VS2010 starts again without the license issue.....
