Can't export from CR 8.5 to PDF/RTF/or via MAPI

We are using VB6 with Crystal Reports 8.5.  When we present a report using the VB control, our clients can export the report to Word or Excel format (for example) but they can't do the same for PDF or RTF.  When they chose that format and select Disk File, the box that normally appears to ask where to save the file does not show up and the process stops.

Also, exporting via MAPI does not work.

sounds like you are missing the exportmodeller.dll and the crtslv.dll on the target machine for the pdf / rtf export. both need to be registered. check this out

Lookin good EwaldL.  I believe we were unable to register those files.  Our version of the Atl.dll file is 2.00.7024 where it's 3.0.8449.0 on the CR 8.5 CD.

I'm having our server guys look into re-registering those 3 files.

Thanks for that link mlmcc (helpfull as always)...  just haven't gotten there yet.  Hoping the ATL.dll file was the problem.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

It probably is the problem.  Both those dlls have trouble being registered for one reason or another.

Be careful with ATL.dll I believe it is OS dependent.  What OS are you using?

ATL.dll was the problem!
I sent the NT file to our server guy yesterday and everything went as planned.
RTF and PDF now work.

Now, the MAPI destination still doesn't work though.  Is there a similar dll that needs to be registered now that we have the right version of ATL?  Or is this something totally different?

So far EwaldL has the points for nailing that on the head and in my opinion, deserves it.  PDF and RTF were my main concerns, but MAPI still would be nice to have working.
