is invalid because the subfolders for the localization packs have been removed from the cab file. (See attachments for details.)

I have been able to confirm that the web parts that are included in the RSWebParts.cab that can be found while installing ONLY SSRS Native Mode, do work against a SQL 2012 SSRS Native Mode instance.

As a follow up to the workaround I submitted I found that the RSWebParts.cab deployed in the SSRS Native Mode ONLY install, appear to be the old (SQL 2008) version of the web parts. It is not clear to me whether these web parts will work against a SSRS 2012 Native Mode instance. I will be trying this and will post an update when I know.
