Reporting Services – “Your browser does not support scripts or has been configured not to allow scripts.”

When I run a report in the Report Manager using Internet Explorer (I had this issue on IE7) I got the following error:

Your browser does not support scripts or has been configured not to allow scripts.

Solution

Should you get it as well follow the instruction below:

  • go to (from its menu) Tools/Internet Options
  • go to Security tab
  • select Trusted zone from the list of available zones
  • click Sites button
  • in new window provide the URL of the Reports Manager (e.g. http://MACHINE_NAME/*); if you are running Reports Manager not on the default port, provide the port number as well

That helped me.
Should you have any problems with it, let me know.

  • Hi my friend, excuse me by tmy english. I did the process like you described before but doesn’t work. I have a Reporting Services Server 2005 and a Web Server to MS CRM 3.0. When the reports are called from MS CRM IFRame the message appears. If the reports are called from http:///reports they are showed fine.

    I hope U understad me, wait yours commentments. Thanks.

  • From the top of my head there can be two isues:
    1. Problem with priviledges.
    2. Problem with the service your CRM is trying to access.

    Let me describe briefly both aforementioned…

    ——————-
    1. It can look as follows: you can preview reports from Report Manager (e.g. http://localhost/reports) using windows authentication (you provide the login and the password of the account you’re currently using).
    However, the CRM wants to access reports as Anonymous Guest Access (using IUSR_MACHINENAME account). Please test the configuration in IIS Manager / Reports Service Properties / Directory Security tab. On that tab click edit in ‘Anonymous access and authentication control’ section.

    ——————-

    2. Assure you want to use Report Manager (e.g. http://localhost/reports), not the Report Server (e.g. http://localhost/Reportserver/), which really serves the reports so you can view them (along with parameter passing) from other applications.

    I hope I gave you helpful hints!

  • Thank you so much! This solved my problem.

  • Actually,this problem is about javascript, if your browser disable the script, then it turns out that message.

  • Fred I don’t think disabled JS was the issue there because I never disabled it.

  • thanks alot it is working for me
