Reporting Service configuration error : “Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.WMIProviderException: The version does not match a supported version”

I was trying to configure another instance of sql server reporting service yesterday; I already had another instance of SQL Server reporting services running on that server, for testing purpose I was asked to install another instance of SQL Server; The only difference was the existing version was SQL 2008 SP2 and the new installation was SQL server 2008 R2.

I installed the new instance and apply the SP2; then when I try configuring SSRS, i got this error.

Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.WMIProviderException: The version does not match a supported version.

---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040220): Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040220
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---
   at Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.RSWmiAdmin.ThrowOnError(ManagementBaseObject mo)
   at Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.RSWmiAdmin.GenerateDatabaseScript(String databaseName, Int32 lcid, Boolean isSharePointIntegrated, String& script)
   at ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.RSReportServerAdmin.GenerateDatabaseScript(String databaseName, Int32 lcid, Boolean isSharePointIntegrated, String& script)


So, what did I do wrong; I tried restoring the copy of the other reporting service database and tried configuring, this time I got something else

Now as anyone else do, I start googling ; found few threads where users are experiencing the same error; and on one of the forums, there was a solution which worked for most of the people; installing SP2, I already had SP2 installed for this instance; I didn't have any other option, so i uninstalled sp2; it was asking for some msi files which it couldn’t find, i skipped them all; after uninstalling sp2, i was able to configure the SSRS on the new instance. Then I installed SP2.

One thing to remember when uninstalling SP2 is that it will stop the shared services like VSS, SQL Browser etc; users may experience some issues while connecting to the server;
