Adding features to an SQL 2008 R2 instance

The problem is this: I need to add SSRS to an already installed instance. This should be easy using the "SQL Server Installation Center", but the client lost the installation files. I don't seem to find where I can download the installation files again.

This client is really slow to respond, I know if I ask him to get the files again is going to take forever. So I'm trying do fix it myself.

Without the media you are out of luck. I would be leery of using a person TechNet subscription or MSDN subscription media set of your own for this purpose. I don't think it looks for license code or anything like that but you would want to check with a licensing person to make sure you wouldn't get yourself into any trouble.

Do you have physical access to their shop or is this remote. The installation media is big.

I uploaded my installation files(all night uploading...) and it worked like a charm. Not sure if I'm allowed but it worked. Thx
