Reporting Services Evaluation Edition Expired: Need temp fix ASAP
Posted on 2006-04-20
A client installed the 120 day evaluation edition of Reporting Services and did not order the full-version CD at the time. We just got a panic-call now that the trial has expired and reports no longer work. They have since ordered the full-version which will take 2-4 weeks to arrive. They are looking for an interim solution.
My current ideas:
-Try to install the evaluation edition again
-Try to uninstall and then reinstall the evaluation edition
-Try to install the evaluation edition in a different directory
-Purchase the developer's editiion to use until the full-version arrives (probably won't do this; might be considered a production environment)
-Registry edits (definitely won't be recommending this)
Does anyone have any more input or experience with this? Some more advice I could give them? Need more info?
Thanks in advance,
