This indicates the updated version of Government Reporting has incorrectly been assigned to an IIS Application Pool which uses Microsoft .net Framework 2.x. Government Reporting v.4 and above needs an App. Pool using .net Framework 4.x. This is also true of SchoolLogic v4 and above.  Here's the fix:

1. Launch IIS. In the first column (far left), under ConnectionsClick the triangle to the left of your server's name, to "open" it; then Click the triangle to the left of Sites, to "open" it ; finally, Clickthe triangle to the left of Default Web Site, to "open" it.

3. In the third column (far right), under Manage Application, click on Advanced Settings. In the pop-up form which results, in row 1, click on the actual name of the Application Pool, which is in bold type. 

4.  Click on the ellipsis at the right end of row 1:
