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?

Is the Adobe reader installed on the machne?

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?
