JSCRIPT error on Windows Server 2003, making call to craxdrt.dll

The Jscript code listed below comes from an asp script I am trying to run on Windows Server 2003.  I receive the following error in my browser (Mozilla):

Microsoft JScript runtime  error '800a01fb'
An exception occurred
/qa/test.asp, line 30

Line 30 is "crReport.Export(false);".

This same code works fine on Windows 2000 Server.  Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

var crApp = Server.CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application");
var crReport = crApp.OpenReport("d:/qa/test.rpt", 1);
crReport.EnableParameterPrompting = false;
crReport.MorePrintEngineErrorMessages = false;

if (crReport.Database.Tables.Count > 0) {
     var crDBTable = crReport.Database.Tables.Item(1);
          /*ODBC Name*/ "Test",
          /*DatabaseName*/ "",
          /*UserID*/ "admin",
          /*Password*/ "");

var exportOptions = crReport.ExportOptions;
exportOptions.HTMLFileName = "d:/qa/test.html";
exportOptions.FormatType = 25;    
exportOptions.DestinationType = 1;

Without CR here what are
FormatType 25
DestinationType 1

It almost sounds like you have incompatible options or are missing a dll.

FormatType 25 sets the HTML format to version 3.2 Extended
DestinationType 1 sets the export to Disk File

We have checked all of the dlls that are installed related to Crystal, they all match with what we have on a Windows 2000 Server installation that works fine.  Also, craxdrt.dll has been properly registered.

I found that by creating a COM+ component for craxdrt.dll the issue was resolved.  Thanks anyway!

1. Open Start|Programs|Administrative Tools|Components Services
2. Open the folders to Components Services\Computers\My Computer\COM+
3. Right click COM+ Applications and choose New|Application on the menu
4. Click Next, then Create an empty application
5. Give it a name and choose Server Application, then click Next
6. Choose This User and put in local administrator and password, then click
next, then Finish
7. Select the new COM+ Application and open it to show its Components
8. Right click on the Components Folder and choose New|Component
9. Click Next, then the Install new component(s) button
10. Browse to and select the c\winnt\system32\craxdrt.dll file, click Open
11. Click Next, then Finish.
12.  On Windows Server 2003 machines, you will also need to edit the Properties of the new
COM+ application.  Go to the Security tab and uncheck "Enforce access checks for this application"
13. That should fix it, but may require a reboot to take effect
