Running latest Windows 10 Home and trying to install reporting services on it.

I downloaded and executed SQLServerReportingServices.exe

It downloads packages and runs install, at the end it tells me "Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services: Something went wrong, please find details in setup logs."
I look at the log files, there are some error messages.
I finally decide I don't have enough system software knowledge to understand what they're telling me.

----- 

Exerpts from SSRS_20200419003751.log:

UnexpectedError: Current security context is not associated with an Active Directory domain or forest.

I tried to uninstall, it told me I needed to restart. I restarted, then tried uninstall again, it got the below error, same as above first error...

UnexpectedError: Current security context is not associated with an Active Directory domain or forest.

I would attach .log files but if there's a way to do it I can't find it anywhere in Code Project www.

I'd be willing to bet Reporting Services is not supported on Windows Home edition.

You'd think google would give some indication if that is the case - can't find anything on Home versus Pro. I do have a laptop with Win10 Pro on it, I am installing SQL Server 2019 then will attempt to install Reporting Services on it.

I too couldn't find any documentation on the O/S requirements for Reporting Services. I think MS forgot about that part when writing up the docs on SQL Server.

Thanks for the link.
I'm running Windows 10, SQL Server 17 (and developing procedures, functions, etc), Visual Studio (latest version) for VB.Net and C# development.
16 Gigs memory, 512 Gig SSD, etc etc.

I bought a new PC, installed SSRS with no problems.
Have too much else to learn to bother with no-longer important issue.
Thanks for your efforts!
