Crystal report export - Crystal report 2008

I used to use CR for 2005 version to call database to get a dataset, then feed a rpt file, to generate different file format.

Here is the code I used to work with VS2005 version of CR runtime:

ReportDocument doc = new ReportDocument();


DataSet dsReport = ... // get from db

dsReport.Tables[0].TableName = doc.Database.Tables[0].Location;


// set export file option


rpt was designed through CR 10.

Now, I downloaded a trail version of CR2008, but everytime, when export method called, I got this execption:

Failed to load database information.

at CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Controllers.ReportSourceClass.Export(ExportOptions pExportOptions, RequestContext pRequestContext)

at CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.EromReportSourceBase.ExportToStream(ExportRequestContext reqContext)

Can someone tell me what should I do with CR2008 to fix this problem? If I switched back to CR for vs 2005, then it works.
