I have an Accounting software package that uses Crystal Report Writer ver 8.0 and I am getting a Crystal Error Number 534 - error detected by database DLL when I go to print.

What's the solution to this issue?

    What version of Windows?

    Can you display reports?

    Has this worked in the past?
    If so what has changed?

    It works fine on my previous PC's.  This is a new install of the Accounting software on this old PC, running on Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine.  The Accounting software is an old version that can not run on SQL 2005 or 2008.  The OS for the PC giving me the Crystal error is Windows XP SP3.  Displaying reports on the screen within the Accounting software is what gives me the error.  The PC has a  1 GB of RAM on 1.80 GHz.  I have exited out of everything accept the SQL server and still have the issue.

    Yes, that sounds like my issue.  Doesn't sound that there is an easy solution, though.  Thanks for all your help.
