Why crystal report does not open from Visual Studio 2008?

I have created a crystal report using CR v11. Its a simple data driven report and uses ODBC connection.
I added that report to Visual Studio.Net 2008. Now when I try to run that application the report doesn't open up.
It gives an error that reads

"Error in File C:\DOCUME~1\johns\LOCALS~1\Temp\letter {EDF0F294-6027-4819-BD93-3687EC7E2699}.rpt:
Unable to connect: incorrect log on parameters."

Please advise what do you think is the issue? and how can it be fixed?

BTW, If I run the report directly from Crystal report v11, it works.

Is this on a machine with Crystal installed/

if not, what Crystal runtimes/msi did you use when you installed the application/

Yes, its on my development machine. It has VS 2005, VS 2008, Sql Server 2000, CR 11 installed. I have created a VS 2008 winforms application.

The strange thing is another developer sent me a second crystal report letter and this second letter works fine with the application. But the first letter doesn't work.

I am doubting if it could be caused because the .Net project and the Crystal reports are placed on a network drive.

Thanks,
Ricky

Is the log on info different than the one used at design time? Is the database accessible from your computer?

Are you passing th elogon information from the application?

Do you get a chance to logon?
