ASP.NET 4 and Crystal Reports RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1343948918 posted

    Hello  all,

    Excuse me if this has been covered somewhere before, but I've looked and couldn't find any such topic.

    I am writing a ASP.NET 4 web application running on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and attempting to view a Crystal Reports 2008 report in the web viewer.

    After battling through issues with:

    • Enabling 32-bit apps on the app pool
    • Switching the pipeline mode of the crystalreportviewers12 folder to Classic, and
    • Ensuring that the appropriate users have NTFS access to the windows\temp folder

    I've finally gotten the viewer to load in the web page. However, despite the fact that the report I'm testing is tre simple, with no parameters, absolutely nothing is being displayed. This is also despite the fact that my SQL profiler shows that the correct query is being run on the database to return the data that should be showing in the report.


    Thus, I am forced to ask the questions:

    1. Does Crystal Reports 2008 work on ASP.NET 4, and if so,
    2. Is there something extra I need to do to get it to work?

    Thanks in advace ya'll.


    Update: I can, however, print or export the report successfully.

    I decided to simply use Crystal Reports 2010, which is currently working. BTW, the current deployment documentation for CR2010 says to use CR2008, so I assume it does work with VS2010/
