Can't open reports in design view

I had to reimage my machine and now I can't open reports on my regular account. But on the same machine under my Admin account I can view reports in vs. I get the "Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed. It must be but I can see it on one side but not the other.  Using SQL Server 2005 and VS 2005. Any Ideas?

lcohan,

Tried both suggestions but didn't work.
"But on the same machine under my Admin account I can view reports in vs."
if you can open the reports in VS (I assume this is Visual Studio 2005) then can you add the other Login to the LocalAdmin group and see if that solves your issue?

lcohan, No I can't add my local account to the admin account.  When logging into the Admin account I lose the network connection. Which means I also can't log on to our server. Just my local Sql Server. I had both VS 2005 and VS 2010 installed on my system. I just uninstalled both but this hasn't fixed my problem. I'm going to try to reinstall SQL Server and see what happens.
What do you mean by "Admin account" and
" When logging into the Admin account I lose the network connection."

What I asked yo to try was to add the login to the local Admin GROUP not account to see if that works for you. I can't see any issues in having your own NT login as a Local Admin on your own computer.

http://bardevblog.wordpress.com/2011/04/10/error-when-opening-visual-studio-2008-project-in-visual-studio-2010/

running this command "devenv.exe /resetskippkgs"  fixed my issue.  On a different page an individual was having the same issue when he logged on reports wouldn't open up in design view but if a different user logged on the same machine they could open the reports.
That was one of the first thing I asked on: "07/11/11 04:17 PM, ID: 37096698"

Did you tried to run:

devenv.exe  /ResetSkipPkgs

You're right. I did try that before with no result. I did reinstall parts of Sql Server before trying that again. There must of been another issue. But it did work this time. My Apologies for not seeing that. Thanks for your help and providing the actual solution
No problem - and I think it must be coming from the original image and existing credentials, rights, pawsords, etc on the networkd at the time when the image was taken VS when the image was restored. I had similar issues sometimes (not always and not the same images) with restored images  and everytime I mentioned it to our IT first thing they said clear all caches, reset all your configs/settings then try again. This may have been from some some windows update some other related patches.
