I am using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Sql Server Reporting Services(SSRS) on an xp virtual machine.. I have created a report and am trying to deploy it... but getting this error...

The specified report server URL http://localhost/Reports could not be found. 
Verify the syntax of the URL and that the report server exists.

I went to see my "services".... SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) is "started", but SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) is not. When I try to start it, it says

windows could not start the sql server on local computer error code 10048

I tried to go in cmd and tried

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe -sMSSQLSERVER

I get this, Server Error: 17058, Severity: 16, State: 1.

can someone please help me...

10048 means "Address already in use."

This means that you couldn't start SQL Server, because SQL Server Express was still running. Stop SQL Server Express, then start SQL Server.

Sweet lord... thanks Michael... I thought of doing that... but I had both of them running on my local machine... so I assumed, sql server express had to be running as well in my vm... thank you sir – EagleFox Oct 8 '12 at 13:48
