    How do I update the connection string for Crystal Reports using VB in VS 2010 to run on a client machine? I can get the connection string to work for the client machine and its database but not for CR.

    CR ask for credetials with development-machine-name\SQLEXPRESS. This box is disabled on the client machine so it can not be updated. How do I change the connection string for deployment for the CR?

    hi bswanson,

    It is a bit odd to understand that you can get the database working on the client machine, while CR fails to work. May I know how did you host the report? Do you host it with any host provider? If yes, you need to ask them for help about the correct connection string from your reports to their db server
