BIAR import error: CrystalEnterprise.Connection could not be initialized

Hello,

I am getting the error

CE SDK Exception occurred : 'The plugin CrystalEnterprise.Connection could not be initialized (FWM 02018)' (FWM 04002)

when trying to import a BIAR file that has been created using the following properties script for the BIAR command line tool:

action=exportXML
exportBiarLocation=C:/Temp/BOAccessBackup.biar
userName=Administrator
password=XXX
CMS=XXX:6400
authentication=secEnterprise
includeSecurity=false
exportDependencies=false
exportQuery=select * from ci_systemobjects

The error occurs when trying to import into another CMS (backup/test server) when using the import wizard or when using the BIAR command line tool (the same in both cases).

The used BO version is XI 3.0.

Did anyone experience the same error in the past and can provide me with a workaround/help on how to avoid it?

Cheers,

Jan.
