crystal reports 9.0 -- (crviewer) enables print/export, but when I export it, none of the applications will load it.

First question, does the client machines have to have the dll's in order to exports ?

this is how I am populating my crviewer

        Dim strtest As New ReportDocument
        CrystalReportViewer1.DisplayGroupTree = False
        strtest.SetParameterValue("@ClientCode", "40524")
        strtest.SetParameterValue("@ViewType", "S")
        strtest.SetParameterValue("@OpenClosedAll", "A")
        strtest.SetParameterValue("@jobcreateend", "01/28/2005")
        strtest.SetParameterValue("@jobnumbers", " ")
        strtest.SetParameterValue("@jobcreatestart", "01/01/2005")
       CrystalReportViewer1.HasPrintButton = True
        CrystalReportViewer1.HasExportButton = True
        CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = strtest
        CrystalReportViewer1.Visible = True

displays fine, soon as I try to export/print, gives me the option to save, but no matter the file format always 182k, and none of the different export apps can open it. I am running this on the same machine cr 9 enterprise is installed on.

Is your application web/windows based?
What is your development environment? VS.NET 2003?

How are you trying to print or export?

When it asks to save what are you entering?

What export apps are you using?

Term56Author Commented:
the app is web based, and it is 2003. Recently upgraded to 9 so that I had the cr for .net updated dll's.

Before installing 9, I didnt have the hasprint or has export methods. Now it does. when I click on export, asks me which format, I choose it, and export. It pops up a save box, unfortunately no matter what the format, word, pdf, excel etc, it always comes out to be the same size.

also an error I am seeing in vs 2003 is this in the webform design mode

Error Creating Control crystalReportViewer1

Failed to create designer 'CrystalDecisions.VsDesigner.WebReportViewerDesigner, CrystalDecisions.VsDesigner, version 9.2.3300.0, culture=neutral, publickeytoken=(numbers)'

Is the CR 9 a standalone version?  If so then you need to get the CR dlls not the ones for .Net.
