CR Developer 2008 extremely slow to open... and other problems

Hi all,

I'm having problems with Crystal Reports 2008

When I click on the icon, the CR window opens straight away, but it takes a full 8 minutes before the Start Page loads. During this time, I can't click on anything (theres just an hour glass).

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling (twice) and I'm still having the problem.

Also, once it eventually loads, I can't get to the Page Setup options. It just comes up with an "Out of Memory" error. I've tried removing all the printers as suggested elsewhere on these forums and reinstalled (as mentioned before) but the problem remains..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Kyle,

Same thing happened to me and yet other people on my team had no problem.

In my case it also took 8 minutes to open.

Once it opens, go to the help menu and uncheck the "check for updates on start up".

This fixed it for me.
