Remove Shortcut to Crystal Reports from Excel

When I installed Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer on my computer, it put a shortcut to Crystal on my Excel toolbar (Version 2000).  The toolbar icon creates a separate row on the toolbar instead of being added to an existing row (where there's plenty of room for another icon), even though it's only 1 icon.  Everytime I open Excel, I remove the icon from the toolbar, but it always comes back.  I even tried to delete the option from the Toolbar Customize screen, but Excel crashes upon closing and the icon is back the next time I open Excel.  Even if I move the icon to one of the other rows, it comes back on it's own row the next time Excel is opened!

It's not causing any problems, but it's annoying.  I would be happy if I can get it to show on the same row as other icons or if I can get rid of it altogether.

Can anyone help?

How are you removing it?  Don't try removing the Crystal icon from the Crystal toolbar - instead just remove the Crystal toolbar itself.

You should be able to open Excel, rt-click on the toolbar, and uncheck the "Crystal" option.  Then close Excel.

Your other option is to rt-click on the toolbar, select customize, then uncheck Crystal from the Toolbars tab.

Yep, tried that.  Didn't work.

I actually do that everytime I open Excel, but the changes I make to the Crystal toolbar always come back!  I have tried everything I can think of (short of uninstalling Crystal, which I won't do).

Do you have admin rights on your computer?  When you exit Excel the settings such as toolbars, etc. are written to a registry entry.  This may be a case that you don't have sufficient rights on the system to make this a permanent change?

I do have admin rights on my computer.  I can make any other changes to the toolbars and it will stick.  It's only the changes to the Crystal toolbar that doesn't stick.  I even tried to delete from the Customize window and Excel crashed with a 'Rintime error 5, Invalid Procedure Call or argument' when I closed it (closed Excel, not the Customize window).

You could remove the Crystal add-in completely I suppose.  Tools -> Add In's.  Uncheck Crystal here & I think that'll remove it from the toolbar as well.  You wouldn't be able to use it however unless you re-install the add-in in the future.

THANK-YOU!!  Removing the Add-in worked!  It's still in the Add-in list, so I can just re-check it if I ever need to use it.

Thanks!
