Preview doesn't work with Windows XP, if there are more than 2 pages to preview. Loading page 3 fails. How can I fix this problem or can Quick Report not be used with Windows XP?
The Print command works OK.
I work with Delphi 3 c/s suite and enclosed QuickReport component.

From QuSoft Page:

Standard Users and Windows 2000 and XP

There are 3 pitfalls if you're coming from Win9X -
The temp environment variables are too long ( 32 bytes is the limit pre QR3.5)
The user does not have access permissions to make temp files.
There is no printer installed.

Best Regards.
Marcos.

I mean make sure that you have a default printer installed in your Windows.
Start/Settings/Printers
Define any printer if not exists.

I have not been able to solve the problem and increase the points to 300.
I don't know what to do with these suggestions:

The temp environment variables are too long ( 32 bytes is the limit pre QR3.5)
The user does not have access permissions to make temp files.
