Crystal reports License error - Event ID 4352
Posted on 2006-05-05
I have a .NET windows service application that uses crystal reports - it fires 10-15 simultaneous jobs for generating crystal reports from a timer.
I have a crystal XI licensed version installed on my desktop with Crystal designer etc. The reports get generated just fine when I run this windows servcie on my machine (nothing new with the 'My Machine' story there)
However, on our development server, I installed the .Net windows application, then installed crystal server runtime using the installation package from Business Objects -crystalReports11_NET_EmbeddedInstall.msi - entered a proper KeyCode (License) and ran the services. Now is when the trouble started.
I am seeing events in the eventlog from Crystal Reports with Event ID 4352 – “A Crystal Reports job was delayed ‘n’ seconds waiting for a free license to become available. More licenses can be purchased direct from Business Objects or through the Business Objects Online Store.”
This message shows up repeatedly on the server – but not once when I run the application on my desktop,
With a server license can I process only 1 report at a time??? Or is it something that I am missing in my server installation?
Any help greatly appreciated
