I developed a dot net 2.0 application which is supposed to generate a 2008 crystal report. it worked fine on my development environment ( XP / IIS 5) but when I deploy it to a 2003 server with IIS 6 I get teh following error
           CrystalDecisions.Shared.CrystalReportsException: Load report failed.
           System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800001FB): Invalid file name
I know for a fact that the file is there and I gave every user (IIS, Everyone, SYSTEM, network service) full control permission to try an rule out permission issue but I am still getting the same error.

account that runs asp.net applications doesn't have access to the temp directory in the windows folder
you must set permission to aspnet_user or IIS_USR to this folder and also application folder

Have you given 'everyone' full access to the windows temp directory?  I think this is where the reports are generated from...

Try using Process Monitor to track down the permissions issue.  Start it up and then perform the function that generates the error.  The stop the process monitor capture and search for ACCESS DENIED.  This should point you to the problem.
