Recently I tried to deploy a report to a Report Server on my laptop, which is running Windows 7 Ultimate. Unfortunately I received the following error:
The permissions granted to user ‘MachineName\SomeUser ‘ are insufficient for performing this operations.
This confused me a bit since my account was an administrator. After digging a bit I found a very simple solution. Right-click on the Visual Studio icon or the Business Intelligence Development Studio icon and click Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab. On that tab, in the Privilege Level section select the checkbox next to the item labeled Run this program as administrator. See the below screen shot example:
Once done, restart the application and Deploy your report. If you have any questions or comments about this topic, please email me at email@example.com.
