Using Crystal Reports 8.5 with my VB6 SP2 application under Microsoft Terminal Server I get the following error when I save a report to disc with data:
"Error in file C:\Myfilename.rpt Invalid Export dll or Export format."

It is being saved as a crystal report file:
    CrystalReport1.Destination = crptToFile
    CrystalReport1.PrintFileName = myfilename.rpt
    CrystalReport1.PrintFileType = crptCrystal
    CrystalReport1.PrinterName = Trim(Printer.DeviceName)
    CrystalReport1.PrinterDriver = Printer.DriverName
    result = CrystalReport1.PrintReport

This works perfectly under Windows XP and on Windows Server 2003, but for PCs or terminals dialing into the 2003 server computer using Microsoft Terminal Server it gives the above error. Does anyone know what is missing?
