Exporting to PDF format at runtime fails with no error message.  I have registered the exportmodeller.dll and crtslv.dll files.  Using Crystal Reports version 8.5 on Microsoft Windows 2000 server.  I have read about pdf and rtf but in this case export to rtf works fine.

What code are you using?  Is this on the machine with CR installed or  a client?

This is windwos appication using the crystal reports viewer, CR is not installed.  When I press the export button I can select Acrobat format (PDF) and I press ok.  Then it ask for All pages or selection I press ok, but nothing happend.

Did you ask for the export to go to an application or a diskfile?

I'm using the ocx viewer in my application and when I press the export button I select format: Acrobat Format (PDF) and destination: Disk file.  Then I press OK button and then I have "Export selection" dialog I select "All" and press OK.  Then nothing more happend and no error appear.

I have Acrobat Reader 6.0 installed on the machine I'm testing this on.

Have you seen this.http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2011686.asp

So long as you are using the export button it is supposed to work.
Is there sufficient space on the drive for the PDF and the temporary files?

Have you applied the latest upgrades/hotfixes
