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

This is the thread from an answered question. I am having the same problem. How is the solution implemented?

 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.Load("c:\job_Profitability_Report_Summary_(v3.2.8.5).rpt")
        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
        CrystalReportViewer1.RefreshReport()

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?

the app is web based, and it is vs.net 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

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

Absolutely!  Note that the Crystal viewer in .Net doesn't use the same export dll's as Crystal Enterprise so it doesn't matter that they're on the same machine.

Let me explain better. My setup is the same as the original post. I have VS.NET 2003 and Crystal Reports 9 both installed on my dev machine. I've created a web app uses the Crystal viewer to display rpt. Crystal Viewer options are set in code behind. App runs report display in viewer. I click export button, pick format, if I choose save everything is fine, if I choose open a dialog pops up saying file can't be found, no matter what export option I choose.

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

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

I've checked the references for the project and they point to Crystal 9.2.3300 dll's

What gives?
