I installed crystal Enterprise on a windows 2003 II6. I can publish excel,word and pdf documents put not crystal reports. The error I get is "Failed to read data from report file c:\report1..rpt. Reason: Failed to open print engine for C:\............ ~\~ci13683856a010e60.rpt.  Ensure that CRPE32 is installed on this computer". Crpe32.dll is present and registered.

Thanks

When you say 'publish', are you trying to upload external documents (a feature of CE10) or are you exporting reports to external formats?

Are you trying to publish a Crystal Report that wasn't generated through CE?  Can you successfully Schedule or View a report in Crystal Report format in CE?

I create the reports in Crystal reports. When I go to publish the report in the publishing wizard in CE it fails at the final step. This happens for any crystal report I use. There is no problem publishing word docs and pdf files.

Did you perform a Custom Install of CE?  Also, did you change any default locations during the installation process?  Lastly, is Crystal Reports 10 present on the machine (generally recommended for troubleshooting)?

Additionally, here's a link to a Business Objects KB articles that may provide further assistance:

The article provides information on permissions and various CRPE32.dll (aka crappy32 amongst Crystal Developers) issues.
