I tried setup web service extentions, add every single dll/exe i found in crystal report install folder, set it to allowed, but when i try to call a rpt file through ie, i still got the cursed "HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.
Internet Information Services (IIS)" error

Does anyone have idea how to fix this?

Win2k3 is not a supported platform for CR8 and IIS 6 is not a supported Web Server for that version, either.  They're both not fully supported until CR10.  You may need to upgrade...

I solved it myself.
First, need go to IIS manger, on the virtual directory properties screen, open application configuration, on mapping tab, add .rpt to application extensions, associated it with wcsinsapi.dll.
Then, goto web service extensions, add a new extension called "crystal report" or whatever you like, add wcsinsapi.dll to the extension, set it allowed.
Now there's a working CR8 on windows2003/IIS6 with very high security setting.
