Crystal Report, Win 2000

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a project that uses Crystal Reports (VS .Net included) and the
System.Data namespace. I've managed to deploy the project and to get Crystal
Report working on my clients XP based machines. However, once I try the
install the solution on their Win 2000 machines I run into some problems. On
some machines the application works but the Crystal Report engine throws an
error, on other machines the applications crashes (with the framework
installed).

My question is. What do I actually need when it comes to MDAC, merged
Crystal Reports DLL:s and so on..? Can't really find a good specification
about this.

Cheers

Richard

You don't mention your specific error, but I had a similar problem a few
years ago with Crystal 8.5 and Win2K. Apparently the issue revolved around
rights. If the user had admin privilidges, the app worked fine. If the did
not, the app would not run some of the reports (it seemed to mostly occur
with reports that were derived from multiple tables).

Didn't happen with XP, just 2K. Unfortunately Crystals solution was to
either a) give user admin rights or b) upgrade to xp. :(

This may or may not be your issue, but thought I'd throw it out.

Ok, thanks,

But what about MDAC; do I have to worry about that and win 2000? I know that
it comes with VS .Net, but isn't it included in XP? I'm quite new to Windows
Form programming but I must say that it feels really hard to deploy a
project that's supposed to work - without actually supervising each and
every
installation... Are there any good guidelines or articles about problems
related to OS compatibility and .Net?

Hi,

I'm running on win2K and do not have any trouble, the MDAC version needed
is installed with the framework. What is the details of the exception , also
see if you can see where it's being thrown, also check your data sources, I
have found that CR is not very expressive in the exception messages :(

You should take a look at CR's web site, they have a good number of
resources there
