In SCCM 2007, under software distribution, you can click on an advertisement name and get a report.  I need to know the systems that have failed to install the package, but everytime I click I get an error popup that states "Failed to launch Report."

Hi

Have you installed a Reporting Point. If you have, can you run reports from the console under Computer Managment - Reports.

Please also check the SMSReportingInstall.log under <installpath>\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs for errors.

At installation of a reporting point a group is created named "SMS Reporting Users". You might need to add your user account to this group if you don't logon as administrator
