There are plenty of pages around the net to tell you why reporting services won't work with Vista. There are some very complex workarounds that may otr may not work, but I have never managed to get it to work. I would suggest either having a virtual machine and putting an operating system that actually works on that virtual (windows 2003 or 2008 server would be best, but XP will work just as well).

Other than that, have a look at some of these.
