Crystal Reports XI "has stopped working" error when printing on Windows 7 32-bit

We only have one user that prints Crystal XI reports.  She recently got a brand new 32-bit Windows 7 machine. She had XP, prior.

She can view reports just fine.  But, when she prints, she gets a message saying "Crystal Reports has stopped working.  Window is checking for a solution to the problem."

This error occurs, no matter which printer on the network is chosen.

I reinstalled.  No luck.

Any ideas?

Check Data Execution Prevention (DEP) settings, they may need to be turned down, or CR added to the exception list.

Is this in Crystal or in an application?

You may need to open reports in Crystal and save them with the new printer driver.

DEP did not work.

I do not know the steps on how to save areport with a new driver.  Can you send those to me?

Any other ideas?  Kind of at a loss, at this point.

Simply open the report in the designer
CLick FILE --> PAGE SETUP
Select the new printer
Save the report

Page Setup does not offer the luxury of choosing the printer.  Are you sure that's where it is?

Sorry, it is in the PRINT menu.  Just select the new printer then click APPLY

Hello:

We found the resolution.  We reinstalled the printer driver and that worked.  The person who set up the workstation must have put in the printer driver for the wrong operating system.
