I fired an older computer that still has VS2010 on it.

It recognize .rdlc files as reports files and offers the option, but .rdl files are not recognized.

You thus probably need to convert the .rdl to a .rdlc following the technique described at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms252109(vs.80).aspx
