Hi folks,

I am having the following error message when I install Crystal Reports XI on a Microsoft Windows 2008 server.

Error 1935. An error occured during the installation of assembly component
{303994BA-6487-47AE-7AF6088EEBDB}

The error occurs at the end of the installation. The status bar indicates :
Writing system registry values
Key: \SOFTWARE\ODBC, Name: , Value:

Version of the .NET Framework : 3.5 SP1

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Crystal Reports XI isn't supported on Windows Server 2008 and probably not with .NET Framework 3.5.  It's older software that was released prior to both that OS and .NET framework.  Also, is your OS 64-bit?  Crystal Reports is a 32-bit application and that may be an issue when trying to install your version of Crystal Reports to that OS.  Crystal Reports 2008 is the first edition to be supported on Windows Server 2008.

Thanks for the information. I'm going to try installing it on a 32bits environment.

Conclusion: Crystal Reports XI cannot be installed on a x64 environment. I installed Windows 2008 Server x86 on my server, and Crystal Reports XI installed like a charm.

Thank you for help, rhinok.
