How to Launch Report Designer in Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations from Chrome

by | Updated April 27, 2018 | Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Financials

If using Chrome with Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, you may run into an issue preventing you from editing or creating new financial reports using the Report Designer tool (Management Reporter).

When launching the Report Designer tool from within Dynamics 365 using a Chrome browser, I was blocked by an error that says “Application cannot be started. Contact the application vendor.” I clicked on More Details and noticed a line within the log file that directed me to the solution: “+ Deployment and application do not have matching security zones.”

Resolution:

I resolved this by installing a Click Once extension for my Chrome browser. Search the Chrome web store for Click Once and you should notice a few results. Once installing I was able to Edit financial reports from within Dynamics 365 as it launched the Management Reporter Report Designer.

That is how to launch report designer in Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations from Chrome. Hopefully, this clears up any issues you might be having!
