Hi,
Have a problem with a web project develpoed in VS2005 using Crystal reports.
I am using the standard VS setup and the Crystal Merge module from BO, everything works fine so far installing on XP or Win2003.
Installing it on Vista throws an error when running the report, I get "Crystal Reports .Net Viewer Failed to Render the Page".
Looking at the question http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Reporting_/Crystal_Reports/Q_22866796.html  indicates that it's probably about insufficient rights on a folder when the viewer tries to create temp images, I have tried to follow other leads I found on the web but no luck so far.

Does anyone have a solution for this ?

Well, look at that.. SP released November 2007 :)
The readme file looks promising so I will download and build a new setup fil for test, refusing VIsta as long as I can so I will let you know tomorrow when I have tested on a vista installation.

Thanks so far ;)
