Is there a printer defined on the web server?  

Is it set as the default printer?

Does the user have permissions to use the printer?

Is the printer set as default?

The NO PRINTER option in older versions was meant exactly for that.  If set you couldn't print.

The newer versions, I believe, doesn't do that but rather formats the page for optimum viewing on the screen or over the web.

Clicking the print button should bring up the printer dialogue screen.  I wonder if it is hiding behind the report thus making that screen not respond to click.
Try resizing the report viewer so you can see the print button so it is in the upper third of the screen.
Click the print button
Does the printer dialogue show?

I don't know.  I am not familiar with the ASP methods of calling Crystal.
