If you already have .Net Framework 3.5 installed, then you do not need to do this. Even if you install it again, it will still prompt you with the same message again.

Solution:

This is a problem with Internet Explorer version 9. To by pass this, simply click on the compatibility icon, then try to access Report Builder again. This time it will work.
