The maximum report processing jobs limit configured by your system administrator has been reached.

We have been trying to figure out why we are getting that error on our application server.  I am assuming that it is because report objects are not properly disposed off.

I am trying to recreate this error message that "The maximum report processing jobs limit configured by your system administrator has been reached."

I've changed the registry key 'PrintJobLimit' to 3 and viewed the report more than 50 times.
I've also tried clicking on the print icon of the crystal report and exported it to the pdf file with more than 10,000 pages.
I tried this on the reports without disposing the object. Yet I dont get that error.

Why?  Am I missing something?

You are a single user so you are reusing the existing connection.

Thanks mlmcc

But which existing connection? Can you please explain? How is that related to the PrintJobLimit?

I'm using Push method to load the report.

I don't fully understand the issue.  It is related to viewing/rendering reports.
Crystal uses a "connection", not sure what that really means but it has to do with the dlls that render the report.

In general the connection is required only for a few seconds as data is read and the report is rendered.
Applications can be written so the connection is only in use during the brief interval it is required.  In general the connection remains open the entire time you are viewing the report.  Thus if you have several people viewing reports, you may end up using all the connections.

I don't know what the tricks are to release the connection other than when you close the report and delete the objects the connection is freed up.I work for a company that provides a report portal that releases the connection as soon as possible after the rendering is complete.  I am not on the development team so I don't know how it is done.  I know it allows more people to view reports simultaneously than other methods.

I don't believe the SDKs that come with Crystal provide the capability.  I believe it requires an OEM/partner relationship wit SAP/Crystal.
