.Net Crystal Reports Viewer against Crystal Reports 2011

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a Crystal Reports which I executed in Crystal Reports 2011 and it runs well, but when I run the same report using the Crystal Reports Viewer using a Windows Application in Visual Studio.Net 2005(Visual Basic) it takes a lot of time to come up the report after I provide the parameters.

In other words I use Crystal Reports 2011 to run a report and it takes around 45 seconds to come up, by the other way I developed a Windows Application which uses the Crystal Reports Viewer and It takes a lot of time to come up with the resulting report.  It takes around 12 minutes to come up Vs Crystal Reports which takes fewer.

My Visual Basic.net 2005 Application process a selected report by the user, apply the logon credentials to all the tables of the report, then it delegates the run process to the Crystal Reports Viewer.  The Crystal Reports Viewer asks for the parameters and after provide them is when the issue happens.

.net Crystal Reports Viewer runs very slower than Crystal Reports 2011.

Please, any help will be appreciated.
