The RS.exe uses VBC.exe which is executing files from the TEMP directory

We use the RS.exe to deploy Reports to SSRS. However, the RS.exe utility uses VBC.exe which is executing .exe files from the TEMP directory. Is there a way I can avoid this because some anti-virus software does not like .exes being executed from the TEMP directory so my Reports are never deployed as RS.exe is treated like a suspicious file.

Is there something I can do to change the directory used by this tool? OR, will I have to change the TEMP directory, execute RS.exe and then restore the TEMP directory afterwards?

    Maybe these programs get the folder from TEMP or TMP environment variables? You can perform a test in a Command Prompt Window:

    set TEMP=C:\MyFolder
    set TMP=C:\MyFolder
    rs.exe . . .

    Hi @Phil Millington-Hore ,

    Not familiar with Vbc.exe and the executing process with temp directory.

    From SSRS side, we could not only deploy reports with RS.exe, but also we could use other tools for help.

    We could deploy reports with SSDT(Visual Studio) or Report Builder.

    Also we may directly upload the reports to the report server.

    Details refer:publishing-reports-to-a-report-server

    Regards,

    Zoe
