Resolving the error message "[87, 22] The value for the attribute is not valid : progid" during installation of SQL Server Reporting Services

During the installation of SQL Server Reporting Services, you may receive the following error:

[87, 22] The value for the attribute is not valid : progid

The window will be titled: Windows Script Component - file://c:\windows\system32\iisschlp.wsc

iisschlp.wsc is the IIS script helper object.

This error occurs if the File System Object Model is inaccessible, typically due to security restrictions implemented on the server.  This is usually accomplished by unregistering scrrun.dll, which is responsible for script handling.  You can resolve this error message by registering scrrun.dll.  At the command prompt, type:

regsvr32 scrrun.dll

 

 

After registering scrrun.dll, the error should no longer appear during installation of SQL Server Reporting Services.
