Hi I have a crystal report in vb.net that works fine on my computer and one other computer in my office.  Both have the full vb.net installed.  The other computer that it doesn't work only has the framework.  What happens is all of my code is implemented and the view is set it then pops up a window asking for database connection information.  No matter what I enter in this box it still will not show the report.  I don't want this window to show....has anyone any ideas.  Here is my code to show the report  all message boxes display:

            MsgBox("starting report")
            MsgBox("dataset filled setting parameters")
            crOrderList.SetParameterValue("StartDate", StartDate)
            crOrderList.SetParameterValue("EndDate", EndDAte)
            MsgBox("checking for summary")
            If Summary = True Then
                crOrderList.Section3.SectionFormat.EnableSuppress = True
                crOrderList.Section3.SectionFormat.EnableSuppress = False
            End If
            MsgBox("creating report")
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = crOrderList
            MsgBox("Unable to Print Order List." & Chr(13) & "Error: " & Err.Number & " - " & Err.Description)
        End Try

It looks like you're using an ado dataset as your datasource, right?  Does the other computer (non-working) have crdb_adoplus.dll on it?

yes it does -- I found something else on the internet that said to put this in the code

            crOrderList.SetDatabaseLogon(RegSqlUser, RegSqlPassword)

I did this and it is now working....

Also have you made sure that the other computer has access to the database and that the dataset is correctly populated?  (Maybe attach same dataset to a datagrid?)  You could be seeing a blank report because you're passing an empty dataset to the report.

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

Looks like we posted at the same time...   My 2nd posting was on target - because you didn't have logon credentials you were sending a blank dataset to crystal.  

Glad it's working
