Deploy Crystal Report in ASP.NET to Windows 2000 Terminal IIS

Posted on 2008-11-05

I have developed an ASP.NET application in VS 2005.  It includes a Crystal Report that works fine from VS2005.  I deployed it in a setup package that includes the Merge Module CrystalReportsRedist2005_x86.msm.  The installation works fine but I get the following error when trying to view a report "The system cannot find the path specified."  The path is generated as follows and I have verified that it is correct.

Line 141:        Dim reportPath As String = Server.MapPath("All Activity Report by Employee.rpt")
Line 142:
Line 143:        crReport.Load(reportPath)

The machine I am trying to deploy to is a Windows 2000 Terminal running IE 5.  Could this be the problem?
