Solution:

Edit the file web.config, found in:

C$Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSRS10_50.RPTReporting ServicesReportServer

Change line:

<httpRuntime executionTimeout=”9000″ />

to:

<httpRuntime executionTimeout = “9000” maxRequestLength=”500000″ />

And then restart the SQL Server Reporting Services [SSRS] service.

This should fix the issue.
