Reports.config has invalid schema, and could not be loaded - KB fix isn't working! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,

    I could never get my reporting to work properly so I just did a clean install of CRM.  Whenever I click Reports, I get the error:

    Reports.config has invalid schema, and could not be loaded.

    When I google this, it says the fix is Microsoft KB article 914079.  It says this is due to SQL Reporting 2005 and .Net 2.0 being installed manually before CRM 3.0.  This doesn't make sense, since you can't even install CRM without Reporting Services being up and running.  Either way, the fix says to go to IIS manager, go to properties for Microsoft CRM V 3.0 website, click the ASP.net tab, and in the ASP.net version box, select 1.1.4322.

    That's fine except that under my ASP.NET version, it has "2.0.50727" selected and when I click the drop down, that's the ONLY option I have to choose from, it doesn't list anything else and no 1.1.4322.

    Does anyone know what else I could do?  Add Remove programs shows I have .Net frame work 2.0 service pack 2 installed, .Net framework 3.0 Service Pack 2 installed and also .Net Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 installed.

    Not sure what else to do, since every time I google that error everyone says the fix is on the KB article but it doesn't work!  Please help!

  • Hey everyone I actually just got it working so I'll reply to this incase anyone else has the problem. 

    The problem is that ASP.Net 1.1.4322 wasn't registered on the system.  To do that you go to the C:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322 directory and type aspnet_regiis -i.  This registers 1.1.4322.  Once that's done, you can then go to IIS manager and do like the KB article says.

    This will give a 404 error on all pages though.  To fix that, you have to go to Web Service Extensions in IIS manager, and click v1.1.4322 and click Allow, since by default it's set to prohibited, hence the 404 not found.  Did that and it works!
