URL to download right "Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012" component needed for "Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 Redistributable" for Server 2016 WSUS server

I clicked on the "Reports" tab of Server 2016 Windows Server Updates Services and was told that "The  "Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 Redistributable"  is required for this feature. Please close the console before installing this package."

So I clicked on the URL link and was directed to the website https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35747 where I downloaded the "Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 runtime."

However, when I installed the "Microsoft Report Viewer 2012 runtime" ReportViewer.msi file I received a message that said "Setup is missing an installation prerequisite. -Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012" (see the screenshot).

I have googled this and the results I have found have had me download several different MSI installation files without telling me exactly which one(s) I need to install. I want to make sure that I only install the component or program that I absolutely need and that I don't install anything extra.

So what is the best URL to visit to download and install the right "Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012?"

Been a while since I did this, but I believe it's this:


Then in that package, it's either:

ENU\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi  for 64 bit

ENU\x86\SQLSysClrTypes.msi  for 32 bit.
