Crystal Reports in Windows Service

P: n/a
Ann
HI, All

Is there a possibility that I could use Crystal Reports in a Windows Service? I am currently working in a project where a particular windows service would import data from excel files, compute them, then export the results on excel or csv files -- without user interaction

Please help

I would really do appreciate it! :

Thanks and God Bles

Ann,

Yes, I imagine it would be possible to use Crystal Reports in a service
environment. However, you might need to indicate that the service requires
desktop interaction (it might require to access a device context). Other
than that, you should be able to use the libraries like any other.

Hope this helps.
