Report Model Project – What’s with all the different versions?

After some trial and error, this is what I found about the versions when creating Report Model project.

(I’ve been creating Report Server project in the last 3 years. Using Report Builder feels a little strange to me. The good news is that it’s the business users who are going to use the Report Builder. My job is to provide the Report Model to feed the Report Builder. Of cause getting familiar with the Report Builder will allow me to help our users when help is needed.) 

Current SQL Server version: SQL Server 2005
Current SQL Reporting Services: SSRS 2005

1) I believe I must use the BIDs 2005 to create the report model. Report models created in BIDs 2008 will not work.

2) The ClickOnce version of Report Builder 1.0 should work right away using the report model.

3) The standalone version Report Builder 2.0 works fine too using the Report Model created in BIDS 2005. It’s has a better report editor than version 1.0.

4) But the standalone version Report Builder 3.0 does not work with the SSRS 2005 version.
