Trying to use Report Designer in VS 2003 RRS feed

  • Question

    I'm having trouble opening a 7.1 solution in VS 2003. The solution contains RDL files for SQL Server Reporting Services 2000.

    When I try to open the solution, an error comes up that says:

        The appplication for project 'C:\blah\blah.rptproj' is not installed.
        Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed.

    I assume the error wants me to install Report Designer for Visual Studio 2003, but I have not found a way to do this. It is not listed in the install options for either VS 2003 or SQL Server 2000.

    The versions I'm using are SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition and Visual Studio 2003 Professional.

    I also have VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005, but I'm not looking to upgrade the solution. I need to make sure the RDL's will work for the production Reporting Services that still uses 2000.

  •   Turns out the Reporting Services is on a separate installer from VS 2003 or SQL 2000.
