Reports do not work without MSJVM
Posted on 2004-09-07
For you Crystal report experts with ASP experience: I have a few clients that use my VB6 application that calls Crystal reports from an asp page. I have been mostly happy and successful using Crystals' supplied ReportsJava.asp ... until XPsp1 where the clients did not have the MS Java Virtual Machine. If i install Sun's Java, the reports DO NOT WORK (just get the little square in the top left hand corner). I've tried to use ActiveXviewer but I guess there is a conflict with .Net and server 2003 and the older com objects. The HTMstart.asp page looks adequate except it does not offer a print option (kinda of useless) .
I need a solution but not sure which way to look. In my newer applications, I use .Net and stream crystal reports to a pdf file on the fly. But I don't know if this is viable in the older VB6.0 world.
Any input/suggestions would be most appreciated.
