I have a user trying to execute a report that uses ReportService2005:

They are getting this error and I can't figure out what needs to change to allow them access.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The user used to connect to the SQL instance, does not have the correct permissions to perform the action you are are requesting.  Instructions reposted from msdn:
  1. Go to User Account Control in your control panel and turn it off (requires reboot)
  2. Log into reporting services using IE because if your IE is set up right you don't have to enter your UN/PWD http://localhost/Reports unless it is somewhere else or you have an instance of the report server
  3. Go to site settings at the top right and find the security roles. Add yourself to all roles
  4. Go back to Home (top left link)
  5. Go to the folders link on the toolbar
  6. Under security settings add the same so you can have access to all of the report folders
  7. Go to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Sql Server\<<Report Server Folder>>" and provide the required permissions for yourself (If you don't do this then you can't do the next step) that way even when you are not running as an admin you can still get to the reports
  8. Set UAC back (if you want) to medium so you don't have to worry about it too much (Reboot)
