Cannot Export from Crystal 8.5 to Adobe on new Server

Posted on 2006-05-05

We've installed a new application server for custom MS SQL 2000 database -- we use Crystal 8.5 for the report function and we could export to pdf (Server 2000) -- now that we have a Server 2003 box (only thing that changed).

I can pull up the Crystal report and export to Excel and other things -- but if I try to export to Adobe pdf I get the following error:

Report View Exporter

Report was not exported. The Select Export format may be disabled on the server.

Only other thing I can think of, which may be obvious to the experts -- we were/are using IIS on both servers.

    There may be issues with CR 8.5 and Server 2003 but I suspect that isn't the real problem.

    Did you reinstall the application and fail to include the PDF export dlls?
