I'm working on a thick client vb 6 application with crystal report 9 (craxdrt9.dll) using active data with TTX files. When I did the development, i use a evaluation copy to develop the report because the license copy that i purchased has yet arrived. After the development, i tested on my pcs for quite a while and everything looks fine. So, I deploy it to 4 clients to test it out. It was running ok for a week but now I got an error as following:
"Free License could not be obtained in the time allocated?"
The funny thing i observed was this error was showing in around 20 attempts to print my report but thereafter it continues without problem....
It seems like related to the licensing issue. Questions:
1) Isn't this component (craxdrt9.dll) is royalty-free component? Do I need to purchase more license for this? If yes, how many client can 1 developer edition license support?
2) How can I get rid of this error message ? any steps that I need to follow before I can deploy the apps without problem? The component I included in the deployment are: craxdrt9.dll, crdb_ado.dll, ufmanager.dll, crviewer9.dll, crqe.dll.
Hope to get some lights from the experts ! Thanks a lot in advance !
