SSRS 2008 Add-In for MOSS 2007
Quick one here…I was recently setting up a SSRS 2008 dev environment integrated with a MOSS 2007 dev environment and encountered some strange problems with the SSRS 2008 Add-In for SharePoint. Basically every time it would run and state the installation was “interrupted” and nothing was changed. To my frustration nothing appeared to be wrong with the MOSS or SSRS setups however I did notice an error in the event viewer related to access to the SQL Server database. It turns out that wasn’t the problem either. There seems to be an issue with the rsSharePoint[_x64].msi installer as mentioned in Prash’s blog here (http://blogs.msdn.com/prash/…)
To overcome this hurdle you must follow the following steps:
- Open a command prompt with “Run as Administrator…”
- Run rsSharePoint.msi SKIPCA=1.
- Locate rsCustomAction.exe file on the file system. This file is copied to your computer by rsSharePoint.msi and is generally located in the C:UsersYourUserNameAppDataLocalTemp directory.
- Run rsCustomAction.exe /i
You will see lots of messages similar to those below in the command window but it will eventually finish and you’re setup of the SSRS 2008 Add-In for your MOSS 2007 environment will be complete.
Hope this helps!
