Installing (and Running) SSRS 2008 in Windows Vista

It’s been a while since I’ve played around with SQL Server Reporting Services, and I found a couple of interesting articles on using a report model with SSRS, so I decided to give it a go.

The installation went smoothly, as I have performed this task many times. However, when I visited the reporting services site I had no access. I am an administrator on the machine, and as such should have had access to the site.

I searched around for a good half hour and still hadn’t found anything that worked. Somehow I got the idea to run my internet browser as Administrator. Eureka! I added my local account to the SSRS instance and everything works very nicely.
