    Hi All,

    I have already installed reporting services 2005 at least 60 times and all are working.

    The last installation Is bugging I have tried all the possible config (created new reprotmanager sites Using the SSRS Config tool provided by MicroSoft) nothing is working.

    I also have removed and reinstalled SSRS always same proble.
    I did reinstall ASp.Net 2.0xxx then reinstallled SSRS and still the same freeking problem.

    Can any one help.

    Thank You all.

    What is the service pack level on SQL & Reporting services?
    Check under SQL Server 2005 -> Configuration Tools -> Reporting Services Configuration and under than list you have to find at "Report Server Virtual Directory" above the "Report Manager Virtual Directory".
