you can write a active-x control which will open the crystal reports and export to the required format and display to the user
asp-active-x dll-crystal reports-export-output file-web browser

this can be achieved from the traditional asp.

try to follow these pseudo steps

1. create a active-x dll project in vb6
add crystal report viewer
create a method such as OpenReport(fileName, exportFormat, ExportDestination)
'this method should open the filename, and save in the exportFormat to the desintation
'you can automate this several ways

2. create the object from asp as
set myCRPT = server.CreateObject("")
myCRPT.OpenReport("C:\inetpub\wwwroot\file1.rpt", "html", "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\temp\file1.html")
'redirect the user to the report so that is is displayed
response.redirect "temp\file1.html"

can you try.
