.net Winforms

Hi,


we have developed a win forms application and if the same is hosted on windows 7 and When we are trying to click the print button in the crystal report we are
getting an error "external component has thrown an exception".But the same app is working fine when hosted in xp. can anyone tell me what could be the reason for the error.

Thanks in Advance

err

Alternatively, rename the C:\Temp to something else - such as C:\Temp1 so the embedded designer can't find the dir

just try that without doing my security fix above you cannot as even in admin you have no admin rights to c: thats been changed in windows 7 from previous so doing my security fix means local admin in windows 7 is like previuos versions

xp and windows 7 have different security settings on the c: drive that could be why I suppose

Try this out.

1. The issue is resolved in Service Pack 2 for Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010
2. Service Pack 2 and associated MSM, MSI and ClickOnce files can be found on the Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Reference page

What version of Crystal?

Is the Win7 machine 32 or 4-bit?

try going into safe mode from there you can make windows 7 act like xp on the security tab of the c: drive you need to do it in safe mode

but also you could try xp mode which is a virtual xp running ontop of windows as thats m$ way of getting all applications working in windows 7
