SCE 2007 SP1 will not recognize functional SQL2005 SP3 SSRS Instance

I have been fighting with this install all week.  Below is what I have done (or not).

SQL 2005 SP3 installed with functional SSRS
Installed new instance of SSRS called SCE.  Functinal.  Can access from http://localhost and FQDM.  Has own sites and db's
Pre req's on install of SCE 2007 SP1all pass.
When I get to the option to select the SSRS instance, I can see my instance.  I select it and click next.  It hangs for about 5 minutes and then returns an error about it not being configured.
In SSRS config manager .. everything is green.
The site has no SSL in either IIS or SSRS config manager.
There are no errors in the Windows logs.

Does anyone have any idea's or seen this before?

I think there just isn't anyone here familiar with SCE 2007.

I came across this web page that seems to describe several possible causes and solutions for this problem:

Not sure if I have this posted in the wrong area?  I think others have had alot of issues with getting Microsoft System Essentials up and running, but there are no posts here?  What is the best way to solicit some feed back?  Thanks for your help all.

So THANK YOU!!!  If I could give you more points I would :-) :-)  I honestly thought I had read every thread out there .. just goes to show a fresh pair of eyes!!  Thanks again
