Visual Studio 2008 ASP.NET app. Crystal Report wont Load

I can't seem to figure out why my crystal report within visual studio won't load. It does not make any sense to me as the report is sitting on the same server as where the app runs from and the report source is pointing to that report and I do have a viewer. When running this app on my local machine it seems to work fine, but when installed to the server it just gives me a "Load Report Failed"..

Make sure IIS has permissions to the report file. This could be as simple as adding your IIS anonymous user to the security settings on the file.

Crystal Reports require access to the Temp Files folder on the server.

CodeJennifer, the IIS anonymous user must have access permissions to the file itself. Can you confirm that in the security settings in the file property?
