Till Some time back my SSRS SSIS services were working fine. I was able to create/open any project from the Business Intelligence Development Studio. That time only BI suite was installed in Visual Studio 2005.

But due to some other requirements , we had to installed Complete VS.NET 2005 on the same system. After the installation i am only able to create/open ASP.NET applications. All earlier Reporting and Integration project are giving error on opening. Even i a m not able to create a new SSRS or SSIS application.

Error Message says:

"The application for the project 'c:\documents and settings\....rtpproj' is not installed.

Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed"

I remote login to this server to work on.

There is another thing, one of my colleague when he log in to this system using his ID, he is able to create new porjects. This is system is not a Terminal Server in true sense.

So What should be the solution for this .

Installation/Reinstallation of Sql Server component or reinstallation of everything.

Or may be some better option.Pls your suggestions will be highly appreciated.



Re: Visual Studio Setup and Installation Error : Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed

What version of Visual Studio 2005 did you install Did you completely remove the previous installation of Visual Studio 2005 When you installed Visual Studio did you perform a custom installation

If this used to work before you could try to run the following command from a command line: devenv.exe /setup. This will not start Visual Studio so when this is finished start Visual Studio and see if that solves the problem.
