Publish to


I am currently using the 30 day trial version of crystal reports 2008 under Windows 7 32 bit. I saved a crystal reports file under my local drive c and want to upload it to crystal via " publish to crystal " which I downloaded and successfully installed.

The publisher in unable to upload the file though and comes up with the following "last run status" for the file

log4j:ERROR setFile(null,true) call failed. C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Publish to\logs\logging\publisher.log (Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden)

at Method)

Failed to acquire upload lock.

Can anyone please asist?


It appears as if the publisher is able to upload items to CRDC. Can you create a crystal report with just a texst box (no data) and try publishing?

For the report that did not upload, does it open in the designer if you double click on the file name? Was the report saved with "saved data"?
