I have a web application that has crystal imbedded in it.  Microsoft recommended adding this code to the web.config  

 <businessObjects>
      <crystalReports>
        <printControl>
          <add key="url" value="http//myserver/PrintControl.cab" />
        </printControl>
      </crystalReports>
    </businessObjects>

I can't figure out where in the web.config I add it... I have tried in several sections.. I can't get it to run.

Here is my current web.config

           its settings for the application. Anonymous access must be disabled in IIS.
          "Forms" You provide a custom form (Web page) for users to enter their credentials, and then
           you authenticate them in your application. A user credential token is stored in a cookie.

Did you try it as its own section?
Say after the </runtime>

Hi,

I think you can avoid all this code just by drag and drop a crystal control into a page. As far as i know, the web.config entries will be auto updated.

The example I saw here:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms227537%28VS.90%29.aspx

shows it being placed after <configSections>, which I believe is a child of <config>. Try placing it under <config> (or if you like, after <configSections>).
