I am setting up a new PC with WINDOWS 7 (I still have my working W2K PC). I am having a lot of compatibility issues with older software.

With my old VB 5 program setups, everything works fine, including my Crystal Reports.
Also, I am able to open CRW32.exe directly and work on a report.
My problem is when I want to add a project component, Crystal Reports 4.6 is there, but I get a "Permission denied" error message when I try to add it.
I tried regsvr32 crystl32.ocx but I get a message that this may not be compatible with 64-bit Windows.
