Crystal Reports 2008 SP3 - Windows 7 (32-bit) - File - Open problem

Just installed CR 2008 SP3 on a Windows 7 (32-bit) pc.

When I select File - Open, I don't get a prompt for an existing report.

When I select File - New, I can create a new Standard Report.

Oh, bad you had to re-install the whole thing! But alteast that might have taken care other unforeseen errors.

On the next question you had, yes, CR 2008 SP3 IS suported on Win XP. I've seen the 'Examining disk space' issue quite a few times. Here's what you can try:

1) Disable then anti-virus on the local machine

2) Run the setup.exe file and select "Custom install"

Now, here's something out of this world that you can try if the above steps fail.

Start the installation and select 'Custom'. On the screen that lets you select languages, go ahead and select the 'French' language along with English. Has worked for me 9/10 times and that 1% of time it didn't, I did a silent install.

But I want you to try steps 1 - 2 first.

Hope this helps!
