Crystal Deployment - Integrated Security

Hi

I have an application which has been deployed and worked fine on all
previous workstations, it is c# based and uses Crystal connecting directly
to MSDE using stored procedures and the ConnectionInfo object.

I design the report on the dev machine, connecting to a local install of
MSDE, I don't use integrated security on any of these reports. Once
deployed the ConnectionInfo object is used to overwrite the connection
settings for each report, this has worked time and time again.

I am now faced with a new machine, XP SP1. I've installed the app in the
same manner as all the other machines (both W2K and XP), using all the
required merge modules for bundled .NET 2003, but on this new machine I am
faced with the dreaded login dialog upon display of the report. It is as
though the report is attempting to connect using Integrated Security (no
option to turn it off in the login dialog) but as I stated I never turn
integrated security on when developing the reports and always overwrite the
connection settings upon running the report.

I have done the "Answers By Email" thing but they just keep sending me
documents that I've already read. They also sent their pubs connection
example which uses the same methods as I describe, this also fails to open
the report again displaying the login dialog.

Any help on this is appreciated, I've been through the usual google groups
searches and found a couple of posts but none seem to relate to my precise
problem.

Regards
Chris.

Quick addition....

The XP machine I tested it on would be able to connect using integrated
security so it wasn't a true test as such, the reports all connect using OLE
DB.
