To make things clear. We are talking about a full install of SQL server.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The setup is as following:
· OS : W2K8R2 (64-bit)
· 1 SQL 2008R2 (standard) instance, with SQL reporting services and management studio installed.
· Default path for SQL data and Reporting services data is changed to : E:\SQL\.... Dll + license file for RS is installed in E:\SQL\MSRS10_50.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin. The license file is dated from 2/7/2010, maybe this one is not compatible with the new release.
· Visual Studio is installed in the standard directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies). The .dll and .lic file are also copied over there.
Powerpoint slides are rendered via the locally deployed reports on the server, but they show the watermark. Under visual studio, rendering doesn’t work at all. When trying to render a report, we always get the same error message “An error occurred during local report processing. Can’t fnd RS2008 instance in registry. Object reference not set to an instance of an object.”
The windows log files don’t show any additional information.
I have the impression that with the new release the problem is only partially fixed. Rendering under IIS seems to work, but needs a new license file. In visual studio, there is still a problem with finding the right references in the registry. Maybe you need another release to solve this issue. Can you confirm this, or are we missing something else?
