I am trying to open some reports  that were created in VS 2005 to make modifications to them.   After making the changes, I have to reload them on a number of machines, some that have SQL Server 2005, and others that are SQL Server 2008.   I originally planned on installing SQL Server 2005 but the new machine which is Windows7 doesn't allow me to install Reporting Services, so I installed SQL Server 2008 instead.  Now when I open the report application in Visual Studio 2005, I am getting an error saying to make sure the project type .rptproj is installed.   Is there a way to get around this problem?  If I install Visual Studio 2008, can I publish the reports, so SQL Server 2005 can read them?  Thanks for your assistance
