Reinstalling Reporting Services 2005 doesn't give option to configure default report service
Hi everyone. I've installed SQL Server 2005, with all the components selected. After a while, due to some problems with Reporting Services (it's a long story, so I'll just come to the point), I've re-installed Reporting Service only, using the guide from the below link: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mariae/archive/2009/07/10/recommendations-when-uninstalling-installing-reporting-services.aspx Now, I'm at step 5, and I'm stuck at the Reporting Service setting. The install window shows option to either "Install the default configuration" or "Install but do not configure the server". However, the options are disabled (greyed out) and it selects the second option by default. I want to be able to select the first option, but even after I restart the OS, it still doesn't work. Is there anyone who can help me on this matter? Thanks.

Hi gpm1982, Before you install Reporting Services, you must enable Microsoft ASP.NET and Internet Information Services (IIS). To do this, you must configure a server role. After you enable the required features, you must start the World Wide Web Publishing service if you want to install the default configuration of Reporting Services. Otherwise, the SQL Server Setup program only installs Reporting Services and does not configure Reporting Services.
