What version of Crystal are you using?

Did you download the version for VS.Net

You get the error when trying to do what exactly?

Thanks for the response!

I am using Visual Studio 2012 Crystal Reports and I get the error when I hit the print button on a VB.Net form.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

This has been happening since I upgraded from Visual Studio 2005 to 2012.

are you able to preview the report? You need to help us a bit by giving as much information as possible if you want us to help you in return.
Éric Moreau

do you get this error on the dev's PC or the user's PC?

If it is on the user's PC, have you installed the runtime package of CR?

I get this error on the dev PC and I am not able to preview the report.

See attached screenshots:

Error 1: Open the form and hit the print button.
Error 2: Error showing in code.
Error 3: error message when trying to open the CR Report container.
Error 4: Another error message that appears when trying to open the CR Report container. (Does not show every time).

Let me know if you need more...

you said that this is happening since you upgraded from VS2005 to VS2012. Have you upgraded CR as well?

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
