CrystalReport in Visual Basic

I have a visual basic.net (2008) that will run Crystal Reports against a sql database.  This works fine.  I can not get Visual baisc to run a crystal report against a Visual FoxPro database / table.  There is only one table linked to the report.  The crystal report runs fine in the Crystal Report developer.  All connections are made and the information is updated and correct.  If I do not use the "refresh" in the VB code, the viewer will pull the last report run and display it.  If the "refersh" is added (see the attached code), it pops up and ask for log in information.  Everything that I have tried gives me the "Log On Failed" box.  I am trying to supply the correct connection information in the code, but nothing works.  I think foxpro does not require a uer id or passwork (?).  Again the Crystal Report runs fine in the developer.  My code is below.  Thanks for any help

The login might be a windows dialog asking for login to the directory f:\gashouse\. While VFP does not have any security aspects, the file system has.

I don't have crystal to check how it would behave. Using VFP to connect to a dbc in a folder I have removed access rights, I don't get a connection, but also no dialog. Instead VFP get's an ODBC error and the ODBC driver error message simply is: "Connectivity error: [Microsoft][ODBC Visual FoxPro Driver]Cannot open file c:\secure\secure.dbc"

If setting file/folder access permissions does not work out, then what version is the {Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver} you use?

Bye, Olaf.
