How to enable .rptproj support in 2010 RC? (report designer files)

Could someone please tell me how to open .rptproj projects in 2010RC?

I'm guessing I need to install the client tools somehow. I tried reinstalling SQL Server 2008 but this did not work.

The error given is: cannot be opened because its project type (.rptproj) is not supported by this version of the application .

Answer 2


Visual Studio 2010 does not support  Business Intelligence projects from SQL Server 2008 R2 or earlier. In Visual Studio 2010, if you attempt to upgrade a project that is created in Business Intelligence Development Studio, the upgrade will not succeed. Business Intelligence Development Studio for Visual Studio 2010 is currently under consideration for future releases of SQL Server.

Just read the URL you provided, the feature is still non-exist.

But anyone of you got any work-around methods?



Answer 4

I just finished upgrading our solution to VS2010, only to find that our two .rptproj Reporting Service Projects will not load.  These are SQL 2005 reporting projects.  I've read the link that Harry provided, but there is no solution given to the problem.

Please help ... we seriously want to move to VS2010 but cannot if it won't even open up a reporting project.


Answer 5


well well, our current work around is don't load it in 2010, keep the rpt project in 2008, the 2010 project is still buildable without loading the rpt projects.
