Windows Server 2008 Problems

Development Platform:

Visual Studio 2003 (VB)

Crystal Reports XI Developers Edition (Version

Developed on Windows XP (SP3)

Deployed (VB) Program Normally Runs Windows Server 2003 (No problems)

Problem: Cannot run on Windows Server 2008 (32 Bit nor 64 Bit Versions)


Q1. Is the CR XI Dev Ed ( the same as CR XI R1?

Q2. Is there a known conflict between this version and Windows Server 2008 ( either 32 Bit or 64 Bit)? If so, is there a fix?

Q3. There is a service pack (SP4) which is for CR XI R1. Does this apply to my version of Crystal Reports? Are there updated Merge Modules as well?

The program deploys to both versions of WS 2008 fine. However, it does not work on either. The errors are different. On the 64 bit version, a simple u201Ccannot access the file in c:\windows\tempu201D message. Permissions have been checked and are ok. On the 32 bit version, we get a 503 error (Service Unavailable) and the Internet Server gets u201Chungu201D and will not clear without a reboot of the machine, literally.

This is an updated question to an eariler post, which is unresolved. Many thanks to whoever can help.

David, the only two versions of Crystal Reports supported on WIN 2008 are CR 2008 and CR 10.5 which bundles with .NET 2008.
