Simple way to export a report to PDF on demand in CR Server 2008?


I have this intranet application written in JavaScript with smidgens of c# that I'm modifying for a client. They've decided to purchase Crystal Server 2008 and they want their application to call Crystal Server 2008 and export a report to PDF to a folder on the intranet server.

I've been beating my head against the wall trying to find a simple way to do this but I'm coming up blank. Maybe my approach is wrong.

I've tried the .Net SDK (wssdk_net_samples_12) and apparently it's doesn't work... exactly. I've been told they're going to get a working SDK for .Net > Crystal Server 2008 before the end of September(they hope).

I've tried the URL reporting and it almost does what I'm looking for. I can call a report directly using the URL... unfortunately it's wrapped in an HTML file and I can't figure out how to get just the PDF out of it.

Does anyone know how I can do this?

I'm just looking to send some info to the Crystal Server 2008 and have it send back a PDF.

Thanks in advance,
