Crystal Reports in IIS7 - postback returns blank page

Posted on 2009-05-13
Last Modified: 2013-11-07
We have just upgraded our servers to 2008 x64 with IIS7.  After setting the default application pool to allow 32 bit applications we can see the top layer of our Crystal Reports.  However, on drilldown it always returns a blank page.  On experimentation it seems that any postback returns a blank page (even setting the zoom level).  Are there any configuration settings I can adjust to get this working the same as it did in 2005?

Using Crystal Reports .Net, that comes with Visual Studio.  Reports are being produced on CR XI R1.  They were running previously on Server 2003 x64.

The lack of answers here is exceedingly frustrating.

The problem is we are all volunteers and may not have knowledge in that particular area.

Here is the Crystal limitation

CR XI R1 is not listed as supported for 64-bit even in 32 bit mode.
