Reporting Services hidden on feature list of SQL 2005

We had to install the SQL 2005 Reporting Services (included with the SCCM – License of our customer) for enabling the reporting point on the SCCM Site server. The operating system is Server 2008 x64.
But as we started the SQL Server installer, the nothing of the installation features where shown except from the client tools and documentation.
All requirements where checked sucessfully, but installing Reporting Services wasn’t shown.

So we tried a lot of things, enabled 32 bit apps in IIS, restarted several times, added IIS features and so on.
But everything we didn’t show up the selection of Reporting Services feature.

So we started looking at the other software that was installed on that server and found the “Reporting Services 2008 Viewer Redistributable SP1″ installed.
And what to say: that one is the cluprit.
It was installed with the WSUS-Feature.
Removing it shows up the complete feature list in the SQL  Server Installer.
But the WSUS started to throw bad messages until we installed the viewer again.
