permissions granted to user are insufficient for performing this operation

The permissions granted to user 'MRJOHNSON01\MRJOHNSON' are insufficient for performing this operation. I have 'MRJOHNSON01\MRJOHNSON'  as part of the SQL user (admin) group, this is my logon.  Also Im  using the default window authentication.  When I logon on to the Report Manager <servername>/reports,  it request me to login.  When I login I get  the "Home" folder, and there is no "setting link for me to assign the "content Manager" role.

I get this error when I try to "deploy" a report i've just created through the Report Designer.  I had this working on my desktop, but for some reason its not working on my laptop.

How can I correct this problem?

Good idea..  There's also Virtual PC from Microsoft... Virtualization is becoming more and more popular.

By the way.... my laptop has Vista Operating System, my desktop where the deploy works has Windows XP.  I've run all the SP's recommended for Vista and everything seems to be working besides the deploy access problem.

I don't have a solution; just a comment.  

You've just run into the main reason many people are so slow to "upgrade" to Vista.  It's a security administration nightmare--too many settings that have to be addressed to get things to work, and no easy way to discover which ones you need to worry about.  I would search the Microsoft knowledge base on MSDN, etc., if you don't get an answer here.  I haven't installed Vista yet myself; so I don't have any suggestions for you to try.

Well it came on my "new" Dell laptop.... I asked for XP but they don't install it anymore.

Well... one way around the Vista operating system problem is that I purchased and installed VMWare, which let me create a Virtual XP OS on my Vista laptop.
