Crystal Reports (Visual Studio .NET 2003) error on WIndows Vista
Posted on 2009-05-06
When I deploy my Visual Basic .NET 2003 WinForm app to Windows Vista computers, I sometimes get the following error when the client tries to view a Crystal Reports:
A Crystal Reports job failed because a free license could not be obtained in the time allocated. More licenses can be purchased directly from Crystal Decisions or through the Crystal Decisions Online Store.
Now, the client is only running one instance of the app, and only opening one report (after a fresh reboot). I'm also sure that the KeyCode I entered in Crystal_regwiz2003.msm is correct (just in case I re-entered it, recompiled and redeployed the app, to no avail). However, on the client's two Windows XP machines it works fine. Looks like its just on their two Vista machines.
To make matters worse, ever since SAP bought Business Objects, I'm struggling to find any help. Any ideas?
