Administrator User Profile in a Terminal Services session keeps getting errors when trying to preview crystal Reports through a Crystal.Net Viewer invoked via a Powerbuilder application.

All the remaining users on the local network are able to preview and run the crystal reports succesfully. The Reports, the Crystal Viewer Exe and the PB Exe that invokes it are all located on the Terminal Server system.
Client user session are able to preview the reports from all other machines. But when this one user with administrator user profile tries to preview them from his machine or through any other machine/client session he keeps getting these erratic errors. Other users with their client sessions are able to log on to his machine and able to preview the reports without any problem.
The Crystal Viewer exe is a .NET exe that is invoked by a Powerbuilder application and requires .NET framwork 1.1 at a minimum to be installed. User confirms that he has all the Trust rights and permissions to the Viewer exe.
This problem happens only with his user id and everyone else is okay.
Whats interesting is that all the error messages show up as having a conversion to date time taking place, when there is no such thing needed by the Crystal Reports Record selection formula. The Report starts to load, and then the error messages of Crystal Reports load failed gets kicked out.
Why would one user alone with Administrator rights in the Terminal server enviornment have this problem of getting erratic error messages,after the report has started being previewed?
