See this also about half way down.

The jist is it is not supported

On a computer that is running Windows Web Server 2008 with Update for Windows Server 2008 Server Manager (KB940518) installed, the server roles and role services listed below appear in addition to Windows Server Update Services. However, installation of these server roles is not supported on Windows Web Server 2008 and only the Web Server role should be installed.

Anytime good luck with it. Again I don't think it is supported and I don't think report viewer 2005 is on server 2008 either!

I would have used server 2008 standard version but after talking with microsoft licensing, they said I would need a CAL for every workstation that connects and gets updates to be legal. but If I use the web version I would not need any cals. Our enviroment only uses the windows server for WSUS and Symantec end point updates.

I'm going to give it a try for a while and see what happens

thanks again

Anytime and welcome to EE. I will say licensing like that does not sound like Microsoft!
