fixWhen following the steps of this article,, in order to upgrade your SQL reporting server from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008, you may encounter the problem described below.

In step 4 you run SRSUpgradeTool /PostSQLUpgrade and receive the following error:

D:\SupportTools\i386>srsupgradetool.exe /InstanceName:MSSQLSERVER /Action:PostSQLUpgrade

getSQLInstanceVersion: SRS Server is: XXXX.
getSQLInstanceVersion: SRS Instance is: MSSQLSERVER
getSQLInstanceVersion:  Actual SRS reg location is: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft

SRS Report Server folder is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\.
Error: Failed while updating registry entry for reporting code MSI component

We have investigated and discovered there is a problem with the tool that may result in this error. We are currently working on correcting this and will release an updated tool shortly.

In the meantime, when you arrive at this point in the process, you can run the script below to carry out the task the tool was intended to complete at this stage.

Two VERY IMPORTANT points to note about this, if you have a 32-bit version of SQL installed on a 64 bit operating system then you will also need to edit the following line in the script to point to the correct registry location for the installation:

strRegBase  = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\ Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\"

Also verify the location you have installed SQL 2008 Reporting Services to, and edit the following line if necessary.

strSRSbinFolder = "c:\program files\microsoft sql server\msrs10.mssqlserver\reporting services\reportserver\bin\"

Then save this script as a .vbs and run it to update the necessary registry keys:


Option Explicit
Dim arrRegStrings(6,1)
Dim strRegBase, strR2Key, strSRSBinFolder
Dim I
Dim objShell, objFSO

  • In CU1 for SCOM 2007 R2 you can find SRSUpgradeTool  which solved the problem in my case.

    The script failed.

  • what happens if i get " Failed while updating registry entry for reporting code MSI component" when upgrading from sql 2008 sp3 to sql 2008 r2? do i need to point the script at the installation folder for R2 reporting?
