I get "HTTP Status 400 - Invalid path /CrystalReports/view was requested" whenever I try to open a 2008 Crystal Report within InfoView when using Internet Explorer 9 (32 bit Windows 7).  The reports open fine when I use IE 8 or 7 or Chrome and Firefox.  I have tried compatibility mode as well as adding the site to my safe list.  Neither worked.  Any suggestions on how to get this to work on IE 9?  The Crystal Reports server is Windows 2003.

I don't know if it is possible.  The lst I had seen, Crystal still wasn't fully compatible with IE8.
See

It states Crystal is not supported on IE8 so I am sure they haven't even started working on IE9 support or changes.

Wow.  I have been using IE 8 for over a year now with no problems.  The end users will just have to use Chrome to access the Crystal Reports when I deploy IE 9.  Thanks.

Not supported means they haven't fully tested it and don't want to provide support for problems.  It doesn't mean it won't work.
