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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
