Unable to Run the Crystal Reports Server XI R2 SP4 file

Downloaded crsxir2win_sp4.exe twice from SAP site. Each time I try to run the executable, I get the following error message:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I am logged on the server as Admin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, how do I know what version of CRSXIr2 I am currently on? CMC says,, what service pack is this through?

Thanks much,



Hi Jeff. Had the same problem, had to unpack the .exe file using WinRAR ( That will extract the files and give you the standard setup.exe that you can run. When I mentioned it to a tech support rep, was told it's a "known issue."
