Common Issues After Upgrading to SSRS 2014 Video

By:   |   Comments (2)   |   Related: > Reporting Services Migration

Problem / Solution

Now that SQL 2014 is readily available, report designers will begin to develop new reports using SSDT-BI for Visual Studio 2013 to build, test and deploy SSRS reports. Unfortunately, "out of the box" many report designers and developers are running into an error when attempting to preview reports in SSDT-BI. This issue is caused by the Net.Pipe Listener service not being started after an install, and thus must be started and set to run automatically in order to preview reports without an error. Furthermore, when previewing reports a command window now opens and if a report designer closes this command window while previewing a report, a similar issue occurs. I have created a "tidbits" tip which covers this particular issue plus two other items which is available at :

Good video Scott - thanks for the information.

The issues mentioned seem like a bit of a pain for a developer, but now at least I will be prepared when I start using MS SQL Server 2014.
