SQL Server Reporting Services is fully supported on x64 operating systems.

You can install and run all server and client components of Reporting Services on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1.

The operating system, service pack, and the SQL Server edition you are installing must be 64-bit versions.

For instructions about how to install Reporting Services on Windows Vista, see How to: Install 64-bit Reporting Services on 64-bit Windows Vista.


This platform is intended for production servers. There is no support for integrated Report Designer or Model Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio. The design tools are not available for installation on this architecture.

You can run the 32-bit versions of the Reporting Services ASP.NET applications in WOW64. You must specify settings in IIS to enable this configuration. For more information, see How to: Install 32-bit Reporting Services on a 64-bit Computer.
