Why won't Crystal Reports 9 open or save using menu items or toolbars?

Posted on 2011-04-29

I installed a full version of Crystal Reports 9 on Windows XP.  When I click on the Open button on the toolbar or from the File menu nothing happens.  Same thing with Save and Save As.  If I open a report from Windows Explorer it opens and runs fine but I can't save it.  The PC has had other applications installed that use redistributable versions of CR 8 and CR 12.  I uninstalled all versions of CR and just re-installed CR 9 but get the same result.

Any ideas of how to fix this, other than rebuiliding from scratch?

    Thanks.  I will try the manual uninstall of CR8.  I had removed the directories but hadn't done all of the specific files or registry entries.
