Where are the Reporting Services samples in 2005?

You’ve installed SSRS 2005, and you’re sure that you chose to include the sample files…yet you don’t see them on your file system…Where are they?

There’s one more step you need to take care of…browse to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Samples and you’ll see SqlServerSamples.msi – run this puppy

When complete, you’ll find everything you need in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Reporting Services

    I wish I saw this back when I installed SQL 2005… it took me half a day to figure out where these samples were.  

    Thanks for your wonderful blog entries – they have been a lifesaver for me as I’m integrating SQL Reporting with the Plumtree (BEA) Portal.

    We are attempting to use Reporting Services within BEA (Plumtree) portal as well. We are having difficulty getting the print function to work in the report viewer control. We have the activex install option enabled on the server and the button is set to appear. However, when we click the print button, a prompt to install the print client never appears.
