How to configure Crystal Reports 2008 and IIS7 and Windows Server 2008?

I have downloaded and installed the trial for Crystal Reports 2008 on our Windows 2008 server. I can open Crystal Reports on the server just fine, but I get HTTP 500 errors when I attempt to view a report hosted on that server via the web.

As far as I can tell, the handler mappings in IIS7 are not configured properly, although I confirmed that the Crystal Reports 2008 install did add several handlers. I read that I must configure the application pool to enable 32-bit applications. I did that and am still getting the same error. Documentation seems sparse and I've spent the better part of the day searching the forum here with no luck. What am I missing?

Hello Paul,

Unmanaged URL reporting - referencing a rpt file in the URL - is not supplied with Crystal Reports since 8.5.

Your option is to create a Crystal Reports .NET - ASP.NET application to display reports over the web.
