How do I get NAV 2017 to work with Visual Studio 2017 for the creation of reports?

I am very new to working with Nav, so please excuse any nonsense I may say.

According to the system requirements of NAV 2017, I should be able to use Visual Studio 2017 with /Microsoft RDLC Report Designer for Visual Studio/ installed, to create and edit RDLC report layouts. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics-nav/system-requirements-for-microsoft-dynamics-nav-2017

However I get an error message when I try to edit the layout of the report: /An error occured when opening the report designer. A supported version of Visual Studio could not be found/

I downloaded the RDLC Report Designer within Visual Studio using the extension tab.

What am I missing?

I saw a forum post where somebody said NAV 2017 doesn't support VS 2017, but Microsoft says somtething different.




I am using /Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2017 Version 15.9.58/ and /Microsoft Dynamcis NAV 2017 Version (10.0.30639)/


Thanks in advance!
