Formula issues with Crystal reports running in VS 2010 windows app running on Windows 7 PC (64 bit) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I continue to receive strange errors on my Windows 7 PC with a deployed application through Clickonce deployment.  The app makes use of Crystal Viewer control to call a crystal report.  The error received is:

    A number is required here.  Details: errorKind.  Error in File temp_...rpt:  Error in formula col1: ...

    When running it within VS 2010, the report works fine.

    In reading online, I realize the windows app cannot publish/update the Crystal redistributables and the MUST be done manually outside the windows application updates provided through Clickonce deployment.  So I did that, applying the new crystal redistributables successfully on another pc I use which has Windows XP running on a 32-bit environment.  When running the windows app on that PC, it all works with the crystal reports.

    Can anyone help me solve the last issue with, what I am thinking is an incompatibility with Windows 7?

    Many thanks
