Following the ReportServerManual.pdf I meet the system requirements, using Visual Studio 2013 and have followed the installation guide but I am getting the following error when running the report server web application; "A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 50 - Local Database Runtime error occurred. Cannot create an automatic instance. See the Windows Application event log for error details. )" I have checked the application pool identity has permission to the files. Please advise. Kind regards, Scott.
