    Hi,

     

    1. Can you open your reports server? http://servername/reports
    2. create a new application pool and set the following virtual directories to run on that pool
    /Reports/
    /ReportServer/
    3. Then change /Reports/ and /ReportServer/ to run on .net 2.0
    Do this by going to IIS and expanding your CRM web site. You will have the reports virtual directories listed there and on their properties menu there will be a .net tab where you can choose what version to run.
    4. verify you can now access your reports server.

  • Hi Sabine,

     

    This is an error message that doesn't make any sense to me. Some more information is definitely required. Do you have CRM and SQL on the same box, did you get error messages while installing CRM, is there any information to be found in the Event Viewer etc. Please give us a bit more infor and I might be able to answers your question.

     

    Kind regards,
