Make sure that the reporting services are installed on the computer and the the services are running. To ensure this go to Control Panel > Administrator tools > Services.

Under Services, look for "SQL Server Reporting Services". If you cannot find this in the list the reporting services are not installed and if you did find the service, make sure it is running.

Hope this helps.
