Invalid Report file path

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
    I'm new to crystal reporting. I'm trying to create my first crystal report on Windows XP Pro (database SQL Server 2000) .
I created my report CrystalReport3.rpt and when I tried to call this report using CrystalViewer from a WebForm it fails at
 rpt.load("C:\\Inetpub\\wwwroot\\CrystalReportDemo\\CrystalReport3.rpt")  giving me "Invalid Report file path" exception where rpt is of the type ReportDocument.I tried using rpt.load(Server.MapPath(".\\CrystalReportDemo")+"CrystalReport3.rpt")) but that didn't work either.

I tried using ConnectionInfo object but that didn't work too...can anyone help me out with this problem.
