Check to make sure that your installation includes the plug-in "" - this is where the preview tab is defined.

but cant see it.

The only other thing I can suggest is to try uninstalling/reinstalling BIRT.  You could also check your Eclipse log to see if there are any related errors.

My conclusion:

Birt 2.6.2 can run only on RTC 4.0.1.

any newer version can't hold birt.

I am running RTC 4.0.4, with BIRT 2.6.2 installed, and I can see the preview tab in the report editor.
