R2 - Error with SRSUpgradeTool.exe

When upgrading R2 from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 the SQL Reporting Services (SRS) component has to be upgraded as well. In previous blog postings I have written about it, to be found here.

However, the upgrade tool for SRS can generate this error: ‘Error: Failed while updating registry entry for reporting code MSI component’.

Microsoft has acknowledged this issue and is working on an updated version for this tool. In the meantime they have given additional information how to solve it by using a script. Check this webpage for more information.
