I'm working on a Vista 64 machine.  Visual Basic 6 with SP-6 and Crystal Reports Developer version 10 with SP6 and all monthly and hot-fix updates.  I first developed this program with an XP 32 bit machine, went through an upgrade and now on the current PC.

Problem is that when I attempt to edit an existing report (*.DSR file) within the VB environment VB crashes and a generic Windows error appears:
"Visual Basic has stopped working"
In the Event Log I see an event ID 1000:
"Faulting application VB6.EXE, version 6.0.97.82, time stamp 0x403acf6c, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x5303543a, process id 0xec8, application start time 0x01c809c767fe1c29."
as well as an event ID 1001:
Fault bucket 533128555, type 1
Event Name: APPCRASH
Response: None
Cab Id: 0

Problem signature:
P1: VB6.EXE
P2: 6.0.97.82
P3: 403acf6c
P4: StackHash_5f0c
P5: 0.0.0.0
P6: 00000000
P7: c0000005
P8: 5303543a

P10:

Same happens when I attempt to create a new CR report within the VB CDR.

Any help?

Thanks.

I can run the full product by itself, meaning not inside of VB, and it works great and has for a few months.  It is possible that the CDR in VB doesn't work with Vista.  I haven't been able to find an answer on that.
