FIX: BIDS crashes when you use the Map Layer wizard to add sptial data in SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services report in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS).
  • You create a dataset that includes a calculated field for the report.
  • You try to use the Map Layer wizard to add a map layer to the report. For example, you select "Map gallery" as the source for spatial data.
  • In the wizard, you match the spatial data from the map to the analytical data for the dataset that includes the calculated field.
In this scenario, BIDS crashes and then restarts. Additionally, unsaved changes to the report are lost. 
CAUSE
This issue occurs because of an error in the report designer of BIDS.
