I have installed  and ran sucessfully on XP pro this application . However, when after installing on win 7, I get error 'failed to validate frx system database at c:\ .....\frx 6.7\sysdata\frxsys32.mdb when I launch report designer . I installed  a 6.7 patch I thought was needed for win 7 but still get above error. Need help.

    where is it trying to put the system database?  where does it exist in an xp setup.

    here is what microsoft has to say

    also you have to ensure that dot net is enabled on your machine

    The file for the system database is placed in same directory on both platforms. It even asks you where to place it during the install the default is accepted. I have enable the .net in windows features but no change in error.

    I reinstalled and it state that I needed .net 1.1 or higher installed. Windows 7 already comes with 3.5.1 so I am at a loss. I do believe now it is  most likely a .net issue . I have .net 1.1 listed in programs.  

    Microsoft says FRX install is not recommended for 64bit but the win 7 I have is 32bit.

    Any other help would be appreciated. Thanks

    File system rights?
    I guess you've already tried "Run as Adminitrator"

    Sorry for the typo :(

    I generally put the data folders outside the program files folder hierarchy.
