When trying to access .rpt files over the web, users get this error. This is affecting all reports regardless of what db it is accessing. It was fine yesterday.

Open the Crystal Configuration Manager.
Stop and Restart the APS.
After it is restarted, try to access the .rpt files over the web again.

How are you viewing the reports over the web?  Through ePortfolio or through a URL?

Have you restarted ALL of the services running through the crystal config mgr (not just APS) - Page Server and anything else that you normally have running should be restarted.

Thank you all for the replies. I appreciate it. It turns out that it was a licensing issue. We recently installed CR9 Advanced with CE9 and our IT guy swore that after registering, he applied the 5 user license. Well, he didn't apply the license so our initial 30 days w/o a license ran out.

Thanks again!
