Running SSAS2005 on Windows Vista
Posted by thomasivarssonmalmo on June 18, 2007
- In order to install Reporting Services 2005 you will have to activate a few closed down features in IIS
- You will have to install Visual Studio 2005 SP1 in order for BIDS and Management Studio to work.
- After that you will need a Visual Studio 2005 SP1 update as well.
- When everything was installed with SQL Server 2005 SP I tried to process the Adventure Works cube project but got a strange message that I did not have access right to the Bin folder for the project, even if I am mapped to the local administrators group on my laptop. The folder for the Adventure Works also had read only access activated. I tried to change that without success.
The last problem was about a new feature in Vista that you will find under user account in the control panel: "Turn User Account Control on or off". This setting is on by default. In Vista I was not a local administrator even if my account was part of that group with this setting on.
After this was changed I was able to process the Adventure Works Cube.
