Check the permissions on the server C:\Windows\temp directory.

Already given permissions to IUSR and Network Services to c:\windows\temp directory. Also by default crystal viewer print option in asp.net 2.0 opens a dialog box to open the file in acrobat reader from where the user can print. The acrobat reader opens and then the message file cannot be found is displayed from within the reader if user chooses to Open it. If saved and opened, there is no problem.

We finally created our own solution for this by opening the adobe reader ourselves instead of using the default provided by crystal viewer.

For this we created a print button on the form and disabled the print button on the viewer.

The print button code is below
    Protected Sub btnPrint_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPrint.Click
        Session.Add("ReportSource", rep)
        Dim strpop As String = ""
        strpop = "window.open('RptPrintPage.aspx','PopUpPrint','width=1010,height=650 left=0,top=0 scrollbars=yes,status=yes');"
        ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Page, GetType(Page), "popup", strpop, True)
    End Sub

And in the rptprintpage.aspx which shows the report in pdf for printing, we added the following in page init


    Protected Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init
        Try
            rep = New ReportDocument()
            If Session("ReportSource") Is Nothing = False Then
                rep = CType(Session("ReportSource"), ReportDocument)
            End If

            Response.Buffer = False
            Response.ClearContent()
            Response.ClearHeaders()
            rep.ExportToHttpResponse(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat, Response, False, "Report")

        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try
    End Sub
