Updating SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services to SP2

We have an instance of SQL Server 2008 that was installed without the reporting services, then updated to SP2. I installed Reporting services from the original CD (no SP2). Now reporting services starts but once I logon to it I get a version mismatch error.
I want now to update reporting Services only to SP2 (without affecting the SQL server base installation which is already SP2).

How do I do that?

The error I get is:

The version of the report server database is either in a format that is not valid, or it cannot be read. The found version is 'C.0.8.40'. The expected version is 'C.0.9.45'. (rsInvalidReportServerDatabase)

hi you have to install the sp 2, while installing the SP2 u need to select the reporting servers and update sp2 for reporting services.
