Reports appear blurry in Crystal Reports using CrystalReportViewer in Windows Forms

Hello,

My reports (text and graphics) appear slightly blurry (alpha-blended) when using the .NET version of Crystal Reports. When using the VB6 version, text and graphics are completely crisp, no blur at all.

How can I have my .NET reports to appear completely crisp too?

I'm using the exact same .rpt report file definition under both VB6 and Visual Studio 2003, but the result is slightly different: the Visual Studio 2003 (Crystal Reports 9.2) version does a kind of bilinear processing, and thus small texts are hard to read.
