VB.Net 2005 app Crystal Reports Doesn't Display Any Data

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I have a VB.net 2005 windows app that uses Crystal Reports 2008. Originally the reports were developed in Crystal 8.5. Reports display properly as expected when run in VB.Net IDE. Probl;em when built application is deployed the reports do not display any data in them. There are no errors being generated.  Literal text (such as report title are properly displayed at runtime. There are no column header or any indication of a database connection with report though. Installer is Installshield 2010. All connection info is being passed properly. Reports were converted to Crystal 2008 as a possible solution but this had no effect.
