crystal reports - error: 2147206429 Invalid TLV Record
Posted on 2006-12-01
i was unable to find a crystal reports section so i am posting this here, since i don't necessarily think this problem is specific to crystal reports.
we have an application that runs on a citrix server and is used throughout the country. it has been in production for over a year without any problems. after a recent build was applied suddenly all non-admin users receive this error: 2147206429 Invalid TLV Record, whenever a crystal report is opened in the app.
the app is running on a win2k sp4 citrix server.
i have tried to roll back the build, but that didn't change anything.
i talked to our IT department and they claim no updates were applied to the system.
i installed the app on a virtual machine with a base install ( winXP +updates only ) and found the error not present
i added sscsdk80.dll to the system32 folder
i verified the dependencies of craxdrt.dll
i regsvr32 numerous dlls
i scoured the web looking for solutions, but only came up with the above and others that did not work
i am at a loss as to why this is happening. it is only happening on this server (test environment), but i am hesitant to apply any of the builds to production for fear of it happening there as well. currently, the only solution i have been able to find, is to add all the app users into the admin group on the server, which, obviously i would rather not do. any assistance is appreciated
