Now that I have a place to put my quasi-technical babble over at MSDN, the space is reserved for me to spew my political bile and enjoy all things sci-fi. Heh.

SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services bug (Build 1308)

Yet another obligatory beta software warning!

Strong Warning: If you're using the August/September/CTP/TAP/Whatever-you-call-it of SQL Server 2005 for Reporting Services, you won't be able to run reports against Analysis Services out of the box with Build 1308.

Why you ask? Because whoever built the freaking installer forgot to GAC the MDXQueryGenerator.dll!!! It worked fine with the June CTP, so... of course, they had to screw it up for this build. *sigh*

Easy fix, after you waste the day wondering what makes you so masochistic as to try to build shiny new products on software that Brother Bill ain't finished yet... Just GAC the MDXQueryGenerator.dll on the Reporting Services server and things will start working again.

Oh, BTW, they seem to have removed gacutil from .NET 2.0, so don't bother looking for it. Just use the MMC console to manage it.

Strike fast!
