Error msg: The application for project ...".rptproj" is not installed. Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed
I have a VB.net web application (.Net 1.14) with a reporting service project developed in RS 2005. The current SQL version is “Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.4285.00 (X64) Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2). Trying to open the application from the VSS in VS 2003 is giving me the error “The application for project ...".rptproj" is not installed. Make sure the application for the project type (.rptproj) is installed.” only for the report project but able to open other project within the solution. Opening other asp.net 2.0 applications solutions in VS 2005 having similar RS 2005 report project is working fine. Any help on this issue please? Thank you in advance. Ephi

Hi, Report project (.rptproj) comes with SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio. In sql 2005, its Visual Studio 2005 with BI projects. That's why yo cannot open that project in VS 2003.- Chintak (My Blog)

Hi, Open it using the VS 2005 on machine where BIDS is installed. Even you do not need VS 2005, only BIDS will wok for you. You can install this by using SQL server setup and then using component selection box while doing setup. - Chintak (My Blog)
