I have a serious problem.  I attempting to create a 'on the fly' PDF based on user input from an HTML form. The Crystal report template is the same for all, just the records contained will vary.  My VB CGI references a Crystal control on a VB form that remains hidden. The printer is Acrobat distiller, which captures print and sends it to a specified directory where it is converted to a PDF for use with Acrobat Reader.  This setup works great with no CGI code attached. With CGI, VB tells me there are no printers attached to my server. Without CGI, VB correctly tells me what printers are installed.

What do I do to get this to work?
Deadline approaching!!
Thanks, Scott

Are the printers local printers or network printers? What user account does your VB CGI run under?

I recently had odd things happen to my installation of VB4 WRT printing. In the end a complete re-install solved the problem.
