Is SSRS installation and deployment always a hassle ?

All replies

  • Hi,

    I personally have had no problems installing SQL Server Developer's Edition on my desktop / laptop / tablet over the years for my own learning including SSRS. I've installed versions 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 and also a community preview of 2014. SQL Server 2012 Developer's Edition is available from; -

    If you have problems during your install why not try a complete un-install via control panel then try installing again. A full install from scratch should take around 30 mins.

    Another general tip please always logon as administrator when installing / un-installing SQL Server.

    Kind Regards,

  • What you might consider doing at this point is downloading virtual machine software, like VirtualBox, and doing a fresh installation of Windows with a fresh installation of SSRS.  Don't load any security software or anything, just see if you can't get it installed and working.
