Project type .rptproj is not installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to open a VS2003 Reporting Services project in VS2005. VS2005 claims to have successfully converted the project, but it does not load anything; not the reports or the datasource. It gives me this message:

    The application for project '<my project path and name>.rptproj' is not installed. Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed.

    I've installed SQL Server 2005 with Reporting Services. In the setup program, I selected the option to automatically configure the report server.

    I've also re-run the VS2005 setup. There is no option that I could find to install a report project, which is what I assume ".rptproj" is.

    I'm out of ideas. Does anyone have any?

    Thank you so much.

  • Hi DesertDude,

    The .rptproj comes with the BI Development Studio and not part of Visual Studio. You need to make sure that you have the BI Development Studio installed. This Studio comes with your SQL Server 2005 RS setup.
