How to open as many Crystal Reports 10.2 reports as possible by a .Net 2005 Windows application?

We have a .Net 2005 Windows application that uses Crystal Reports 10.2. We encounter a problem when viewing a number of reports, say about 70 reports. It gives a "Load Report Failed" error and does not open  anymore report. We see some comments on the web suggesting that the report objects should be closed and disposed. The problem is our application needs to open serveral reports (say 100 reports) at the same time. We are looking for possible ways for our application to open as many reports as possible while keeping the reports opened for the user. We appreciate any comments.

    When you say several reports at the same time do you mean by a single user or for several users?

    Crystal has a limitation on the number of connections it allows and I don't think you can get even 10 reports opened simultaneously particularly on 1 computer.

    Would exporting to PDF and opening them as PDFs suffice?

    Thank you for the comment.
    We decided to limit the number of reports opened simultaneously.

    By default, the number of report limit is 75.
