I *think* I can help but first 2 questions.

1, did you try testing it directly from the server?
2, did you upload the files

4, and what error if any, did you get when attempting to run it using:

You didn't answer any of my questions.

If you don't need my assistance, I will stop.

So far, what you have said is that you have previewed using ssrs but you have to upload it before you can view it using localhost/reports/

In fact, you use http://localhost/reports to upload your reports, create the datasources, give them permissions and then you can view them.

Has it deployed the report successfully?
Right click report in BIDS and select deploy and check in output window if it was successful it should also tell you where it deployed to (which is in your project configuration).

When I try to deploy my report by clicking F5 button then Reporting Services Logon screen appears. And I have tried all username/password combinations to deploy the solution.

Oh god...
Finally I found my mistake.
I have modified the project URL as  http://localhost/ReportServer from the project properties
That's it!!
the old version was http://localhost/Reports
