Hi,

I have managed to install reporting services with sql server 2005 express edition (Advance) on windows vista ultimate 64 bit. But now unable to access it's report server and report manager. After doing configurations; when I try to open report manager it gives me following error;

StringStartsWith can't accept null parameters

Can you please where configurations are getting wrong?

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
