Problems installing Reporting Services 2012 addon on a SharePoint 2010 server

I have been trying to update the Reporting Services 2012 addin for SharePoint on a SharePoint farm (Test environment) where the services was running like this:
Server01 - Central Admin + SharePoint DB's
Server02 - Reporting  Services 2012

Both servers acts as a front end server for the SharePoint 2010 Farm.

Problem is that I cannot create the Service Application described in the setup guide: "nstallation Error: Could not find SharedCode on SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\110 registry key."

Problem is that there should be no such key on the Central admin server, only on the server running RS2012 (that is how it worked before and that is how it works in production environment)

Any clues as why this error shows up and what should be done to get the RS 2012 running on the test servers?

have you followed these steps?

Especially installing both "Reporting Services - SharePoint" and the RS add-in?

Thanks and HTH

So you put SQL 2012 media in Server 02, ran the installer and chose BOTH SharePoint Reporting options, correct?

Then you put the media in Server 02 and installed the Reporting Service add-in only?

@Ach1lles: I did a add-in only install on Server01

Sorry, I meant to put Server01 in my second phrase.

So you did install the SharePoint SSRS from the SQL Media on Server 02, correct?  If not, you need to.  

Then you only installed the Add-In on Server01, which is fine.

We did an install of the SSRS on Server02 as far as I know... and yes only the add-in on Server01. So far - even if we tried to remove all 2012 components and re-install it did not work...

The problem required several full installations of the required components and we even had some issues where the provided versions of those did not match (resulted in a non-functional install). Finally we found matching versions and got the installation running

It took several support tickets with Microsoft to get this running
