Hello All,

I am having a great deal of difficulty getting up and running with SQL Server Reporting Services and an attempt to view a report using a Report Viewer Control in my .Net Web Application.

I was hoping to ask a few general questions to point myself in the right direction.

1.)  Where should the .RDL files reside?  
-My RDL files currently reside in a Report Server Project that is a part of my solution in Visual Studio.  I am unsure whether this is the proper place or if they somehow need to make their way to the report server.

2.)  How do I gain access to my report server?
-I have attempted to navigate to the URL and receive the following error "The permissions granted to user XXXX are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)"  This error is documented in many places online.  Each place tells me to do something along the lines of running internet explorer as administrator.  However, this is not working for me.  I am currently the ONLY user (this is my personal computer) and I cannot seem to understand why I cannot run IE as admin to access my SSRS Server.  Does anyone have any idea why I would not be able to do so?

3.)  In the Report Server Control in remote mode, what will the "Path" attribute be?  My thought is that it will eventually be the path from the root of the report server where I will have to put my .RDL files, but the answer to this question is really dependent on question 1.

I really appreciate any help that the group can provide.  I understand that various people have asked this question throughout the different forums and I have actively attempted a lot of these solutions, but none seems to work for me clearly lay out where these files belong and to help trouble shoot why I cannot access the report server.
