Crystal XI ReportViewer Slow

My report is extremely slow when viewing it in either CMC or BI Launch Pad. I have developed a very simple 'hello world' report that only displays one line of text.  It does not access a database. I developed the report with the visual Studio 10 Crystal Report plug in.  I created a .rpt file.  I uploaded this file to CMC and ran it.  In CMC, I scheduled the report to run and it ran in 2 seconds.  I then clicked on the report title to view it, and it takes over 2 minutes to display.

Did you try to view the report for a second time? It is possible that the first time you are trying to view it some components are loaded in memory and this is slowing the process .
Do you have a specific printer which is available just on your developer machine? This might be another reason , because the report will try to get the printer information to format the page.

Thanks Vasto.  The slow report viewing happen every time, not just the first time.  How does the report try to get the printer information?  Is there a setting I can change?
Try to remove the printer : click menu File - > "Page Setup" and check the check box "No printer (optimize for screen display)"
Vesto,
Do you mean in Visual Studio where I'm creating the report?  If so, Menu/File/Page Setup is greyed out.

thanks.
