Please check note 8 enclosed below:

8 SQL Server 2005 Express Edition requires SP1 on Windows Vista. SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services requires SP2 on Windows Vista.

I'm afraid to say I could never get SSRS 2005 working on Vista.
If installed SQL 2005 over 50 times but in about 5 attempts now, never got it to work on Vista.

I would honestly suggest jumping straight to SQL 2008 Express and save your sanity. Haven't tried it on Vista but have installed it a few times on Windows 7 without a hitch.

Cheers
Chris
