Reporting Services Plus Vista Equals Pain

I spent quite a few hours yesterday trying to get Reporting Services to work on my Vista laptop.  It didn’t end up working.  For quite a long time I got a login prompt when trying to go to localhost/reports, which would bomb after 3 tries and had references to several KB articles, including this one:


None of the ones listed helped. 

I found plenty of others with similar problems.  I made sure to install the December CTP of SQL Server 2005 SP2 but that didn’t help.  I found this newsgroup post that seemed like it might help, but didn’t.  Perhaps it will help someone else.

As it stands now, going to localhost/reports requires a login, and when I sign in with my standard user (who is also an administrator) it does let me in without a 401.1 error, but now all I see is the header.  There is nothing below the header, where the reports and folders should be located.

It was a frustrating evening, but I think I’m going to have to stick with XP/Win2k3 for now.
