Crystal Reports got installed w/ the application....at least that's what we have. Not sure what causes this error.

The resolution was our programmers released a new version of the code, and did not use Crystal Reports as the report engine.

I think that there is a bug somewhere in the CR side that they won't fix.....having to do w/ licensing. If you are like us, the only time this would happen is when the user would print over 100+ reports in a single day. In some packs of CR licensing, that limitation was built in for a licensing reason, however, I am guessing that if CR came bundled w/ VS (like from ComponentOne), if you read the licensing, there are not supposed to be those limitations.....so, CR modified their code so that the limitation wouldn't show up in the bundle packs....however, they didn't do a very good job, and this error is what you see.

CR won't fix it, because they are trying to convince people to upgrade to full blown version ...which would have been about a 10k investment for us, in a product that wasn't supposed to have that issue (because it was bundled w/ VS thru ComponentOne)

I know that doesn't help if you don't have control over the application you are using. If it is an inhouse app, try to convince them to dump CR....and use a different report engine.

Again, that's only what I was able to piece together.....between google and our testing.

I was just relating my own experience. There isn't an answer out there for him, unless you count getting the full blown CR server....
