Security issue with Crystal Report 8.5


I have a strange issue in one of my application.

I created an application in visual basic 6 using Crystal Report 8.5.

I use this lines of code in my program :

Dim adoRecordset As New ADODB.Recordset

Dim mCrrep As CRAXDRT.Report

Dim mCExport As CRAXDRT.ExportOptions

Dim objCrystal As CRAXDRT.Application

Dim strDatabase As String

Dim strServer As String

Dim pwd As String

Dim user As String

Dim CRXParamDefs As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinitions

Dim CRXParamDef As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinition

Dim sshel As New Shell

adoRecordset.Open "spFactura " + CStr(pIdxFactura), gstrCadenaConexRpt

' We load the crystal report

Set objCrystal = New CRAXDRT.Application

Set mCrrep = objCrystal.OpenReport(GenReportes$ + GL_NOMBRE_REPORTE, 1)


' We load the parameters

Set CRXParamDefs = mCrrep.ParameterFields

For Each CRXParamDef In CRXParamDefs

With CRXParamDef

Select Case .ParameterFieldName

Case "@Factura"

.SetCurrentValue pIdxFactura

End Select

End With


' We added the values for the options we need

mCrrep.ExportOptions.DestinationType = crEDTDiskFile

mCrrep.ExportOptions.FormatType = crEFTPortableDocFormat

mCrrep.ExportOptions.DiskFileName = pFileName & ".pdf"

mCrrep.ExportOptions.PDFExportAllPages = True

' We load the recordset

mCrrep.Database.SetDataSource adoRecordset, 3, 1

mCrrep.EnableParameterPrompting = False

mCrrep.Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo "", "", GenUsuario$, Password$

' We create the report

mCrrep.Export False

When I execute the software on my dev machine I have no problem but when I do the same on the Client machine the export don't seem to work.

The pdf file is not created and I have no error, if I run the software in admnistator on the client machine everything work.

I added all the secrurities on all directories where the application work but is not working except if I run it in administrator.

So I don't know which security I need to apply.

Both OS (the dev and the client) are Windows 7 Pro 32 bits.

I applied the latest fixes on the dev machine but it's worst because when I do that now I have the error can't export file on the client machine.

But maybe is normal.
