Visual Studio 2008

Running Windows Server 2008 R2 standard.

I am developing SSRS.  I am an admin on this machine.  I was not having problems, but suddenly when I am designing a report and I try to preview it says that I do not have permission to access my own .rdl file in my own folder.

I can access this file under windows explorer, but inside studio, now I can't preview a report I was previewing an hour ago... Weird.  Any help would be mucho appreciated.

Thanks, Matt

Error Message When Using a New Feature in SSRS 2008 R2

I was in BIDS 2008, in Windows Server 2008 R2.  It makes the folder that contains the .rdl READ ONLY for files only.  You need to right click on the windows folder and uncheck this behavior and apply to subfolders.

Also, note, you must run (even if you are an admin in the domain or local box) IE as an admin by right clicking on it.  If you do not do this you will not be able to see the reportserver page for SSRS.
