I'm upgrading our 2005 database server (and SSRS) to 2008 (on a different box). What I've done so far is install SQL 2008 (SSRS & SSIS), I have taken a backup of (the 2005) ReportServer & ReportserverTempDB and restore it on to the new server, the new server also has VS2008 on it as well And SSRS has been configure correctly.

I would like to take a few reports from the 2005 server and have them come up in SSRS on the 2008 box, do I just copy the .rdl to the new server local drive and open up VS2008 and change the header Or find the 2005 Solution Folder and copy that to the new server and open it in 2008 (the wizard should do the conversion for me right) But how can I find the path of the 2005 Solution folder, isn't it virtual.
