Failed to run Crystal Reports x64 run time for VS2008
Posted on 2011-02-21
When running CRRedist2008_x64.msi to install Crystal Reports runtime for VS2008 on a new HP Windows 7 64-bit computer (Home Premium), the installation program vanished when there were about 10 seconds left. I can see the CR runtime listed in the list of installed programs (under Control Panel | Programs), but the installation is apparently incomplete because when I ran the VS2008 application invoking Crystal Reports, the following error occurred:
An error has occurred while attempting to load Crystal Reports runtime.
Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal Reports (x86, x64, or Itanium) required.
I have installed this runtime on several other computers previously and none of them has this problem. I've tried to turn off McAfee's firewall and runtime file protection, and windows UAC, the above problem still occurred.
Any possible cause of this problem?
