ASP and Crystal (URL)

I'm using Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer and IIS 5. I created an asp page calling a Crystal report with syntax:
response.redirect "march.rpt?init=actx". It's a static report, doesn't need to be refreshed. When I browse the page, it prompts me to save the file instead of showing it in the browser. I have the web component installed and everything. I found some information that says that I have to map the rpt and cri files in ISS to some dlls but I don't know exactly which are the dlls or I can't find them. Please, help!!!!!!!!!

This should help:

Prompted for SAVE TO DISK using IIS 4.0 when calling a report via the URL Command line.

Ensure that the Virtual directory your reports are stored in has both Read and Execute rights. Verify that there is only one entry of the .rpt and .cri in the ISAPI Extentions. See article in this document entitled "Virtual Servers – App Mappings for Internet Information Server 4.0" Check in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters\ScriptMap make sure that both .rpt and .cri exist and the path is pointing to the location of the CRWEB.DLL and CRIMAGE.DLL on the machine.


Go to the Management Console. Start|Programs|NT 4.0 Option Pack|Internet Information Server|Internet Service Manager.
Right Click on the Web Site that you are using. The default is Default Web Site.
Choose Properties.
Click on the Home Directory tab, configuration button, within this dialog, right at the top, there is an option that states "Cache ISAPI Applications" make sure this is checked on. In the middle of this dialog there will be the instances of .rpt and .cri, if more than one entry remove all but one occurrence of each extension.
NOTE: If there are NO ENTRIES within this dialog box you will need to add them. See the article above.

Thank you for responding. I'm using Windows 2000 Server and IIS 5. I have seen the article before and the problem is that I don't have entries for rpt or cri and I don't know which dll I should map to because the ones suggested by the article are not present at all for Crystal 8.5.
