Crystal Reports, 9 - Field Explorer wont Open

All of a suuden - after months of using Crystral Reports (version 9), the field explorer won't load onto the screen. Both the icon and the menu approach fail to open up the field explorer. I really dont want to re-install if possible. Any suggestions?

It might be something in the registry.
I found something on the Field Explorer  at this path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Business Objects\Suite 11.5\Crystal Reports\Toolbars11\Default

For CR 9, it si probably something similar, except it was Crystal Decisions instead of Business Objects, and then a different suite #.

How do I get there and what do I do once I'm there? Should I just re-install? Its odd - I cant seem to get it back. Frustrating to say the least

I haven't used CR9.  Is the field explorer like CR8 in that it is simply a popup or can you lock it in place?

I had a similar problem with CR XI.  The Field explorer became undocked and I had trouble getting it back.  I don't recall what i did.
Do you have the designer at MAX?  Try shrinking it.

I unfortunately had to uninstall it all and reinstall it. It came back, but what a pain. Thanks for trying - I will split points for all that tried to help.

Go to the View menu, Toolbars, Reset Toolbars and Explorers on next Restart.
Then restart Crystal Reports.  That got my Field Explorer back!
