I have the following code to export Crystal report to .pdf file ( VS 3.5):

public string Export(ExportFormatType exportformat, string[,] parname_value)
        {
            ReportDocument crReport = new ReportDocument();
            try
            {
                //Load the standalone report
                crReport.Load(_crreportlocation);
                TableLogOnInfo logon=new TableLogOnInfo();
                for (int i = 0; i < crReport.Database.Tables.Count; i++)
                {
                    logon = crReport.Database.Tables[i].LogOnInfo;
                    logon.ConnectionInfo.UserID = "userid";
                    logon.ConnectionInfo.Password = "userpsw";
                    crReport.Database.Tables[i].ApplyLogOnInfo(logon);
                }
                             
                //start export
                DiskFileDestinationOptions dfdo = new DiskFileDestinationOptions();
             
                dfdo.DiskFileName = _exportfilelocation;
                crReport.ExportOptions.DestinationOptions = dfdo;
                crReport.ExportOptions.ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.DiskFile;
                crReport.ExportOptions.ExportFormatType = exportformat;
                for (int i = 0; i < _paramcount; i++)
                {
                    crReport.SetParameterValue(parname_value[i, 0], parname_value[i, 1]);
                }

                crReport.Export();
                return "OK";
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                return "CrystalReport. Export: " +ex.Message;
            }
            finally
            {
                crReport = null;
            }
        }
Report has a dynamic image. When I run the report from Crystal reports all images displayed correctly. If I run the code, the images are not loaded.  When I did the same in VS 2005 I did not have any issues. Any idea what I am doing wrong ?
Thank you

What version of Crystal are you using?

What version of Visual Studio?

Did you update the references to match the version of Visual Studio?

Have you tried using the Crystal for .Net?

CR XI R2 (v11.5) was specifically for .Net 2.0 and VS2005.

According to these references CR XI R2 is only supported on .Net 2.0 and earlier.  If you are using .Net 3.0 and later that may be the problem.  ALso it is not supported on VS2008 and later.

i think i can not achieve this in VS 2008. I tried to use Crystal for .net and it doesn't work.
Thank you for your help.
