Hi,

I am opening crystal reports from within my asp.net 2.0 web page and displaying them in the cr viewer.  All goes well until I try to open these same reports using a a domain account that is not in the domain admin group.

1)  I am using windows authentication as this is an internal web site.
2)  the domain users group has full control of the folders that house these reports (I'm still testing I'll lock it down later)
3)  the reports themselves use a system DSN using sql authentication and a standard report user account

Using this same approach I am able to open excel files housed in the same folder as the Crystal Reports.

Have you been restarting IIS each time you change the permissions?

Perhaps I have posted to the wrong category?  I am stumped I have been to the MS site and the BO site and found no help there.  It seems obviously a rights issue but where?  I completely opened permissions no luck.

One more thing, try giving NETWORK SERVICE rights to the C: drive.  Beyond that, I'd have to see it myself.

I have it working for non-admin users after doing the following.  

1)  Granted  Everyone read and list on the folder that house the reports on the site,
2)  Created a Virtual Directory that points to the folder containing the  crystalreportwebformviewer3 granted everyone read list here as well.  


This is not how I leave it but its a step in the right direction...
