    I understand it.
    Please let me see how to avoid this error and finish printserver configration?
    I tried some pattern but failed to avoid this error.
    Will this error be fixed by any product patch?

      Sorry the delay,

      1)Install the Financial Reports Studio on Server (The files needed are within the client)
      2) From a command line, navigate to:

      FinancialReportingStudio_Installation_Location/products/financialreporting/install/bin and open FRSetupPrintServer.properties in a text editor.

      3) Specify the Financial Reporting Server URL and administrator credentials used to register the Financial Reporting Print Server:

      FRWebServer=http://server:port (specify the same Server URL used when connecting from Financial Reporting Studio)
      AdminUser=userName
      AdminPassword= password

      4) From a command line, navigate to FinancialReportingStudioInstallationLocation/products/financialreporting/install/bin/ and run the following command:

      FRSetupPrintServer.cmd to configure and register the Print Server.

      5) Ensure that the Financial Reporting Print Server service has been created and started. You might have to start it manually the first time.
