Report Load Failed

I Created a web site using the tool Iron Speed.  The tool created the ASP.NET web site as a Visual Studio 2005 solution to be run in .NET framwork 2.  In one of the pages it calls a a crystal report version 10.  The report works fine in the development PC which is running Windows XP Version 2002 server pack 3.  Please find the code calling the report.  

The report was deployed using the MSI installer coming with Iron Speed.  As part of the installation the following DLLs related to Crystal are copied in the bin folder of the application.  


The application was installed under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot.  The web site uses windows AD and impersonisation is set to true.  The applicaiton when run for the first time gave errors on the following Crystal assembly lines in web.config.  

        <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304" />
        <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ClientDoc, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304" />
        <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304" />
        <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304" />

I installed vs 2005 on the production server and the error got resolved.  However whenever I invoke the crystal reports it gives the error "Report Load Failed".  

I set permissions on C:\documents and settings,  C:\Windows\temp, C:\Inetpub  Full control for all machine users and for ASPNET, NETWORK SERVICE, IIS_WPG.  Still the error is coming.

Please help to resolve this problem as it has take already 3 days and I am in real trouble.

I experienced a similar problem a while ago and I Googled it and found a workaround (not a solution, but it did the job) at this link (David Rollins answer):

Thanks for the replies.  

I resolved the problem by upgrading reports to XI Release 2 and installing Crystal XI R2 runtime from SAP.  Also, it seems there is a problem with the line


I had to replace Me.Page.MapPath(fileName)  with a string variable containing the full path of the crystal report.  For example,
