maybe the open dialog box is outside your screen.

try resizing your screen after clicking the open dialog box.

I'm having the same issue when I install a fresh copy of Crystal reports 9.0. Applying the service pack
did not fix. Re-sizing the screen did not fix either.

DId you uninstall it first or is this on a new machine?

New install on two different PCs. One of two un-installed then re-installed. Same behavior on four
other PCs.

This sounds like a problem you should be asking to Business Objects.

You may have something on your machines that is interfering with Crystal.
