Load Report Failed


Hi All,

I created a simple crystal report using visual studio 2008 (GAC INSTALLED VERSION 10.5.3700.0) . It is working fine locally. When I deploy it to the server when I click on the report I am seeing the empty report with  "LOAD REPORT FAILED" Text. How can I resolve this Issue?

I checked the GAC and made sure that Both are using the same version of Crystal reports . Can some one help me how to resolve this issue?

Event ID 7000 - The system cannot find the path specified.


This is a very old prolem that i am getting to. First off I went through anywhere from 4 to 6 or more sessions with a Microsoft TECH and it even escalated a couple of levels of TECH support to boot. I can't remember the details specifically. I do know that I've started with gound up (installed/uninstalled NET Framework versions) installs to where I have all the versions installed. The Service doesn't start either automatically nor manual. I tried the patience of the Support people to fix this last error at that time.

I am starting anew to get the NET Framework Service to work properly . I hope I am in the right support forum.

Crystal Report load failed on Windows 7, VB.NET window application

I've a window application that load crystal report perfectly fine on Windows Vista. But when I tried to run the application on Windows 7, it gives me inconsistent behavior: sometimes the report will load, sometime I will just see the blue wheel, sometime it gives report load failed exception.

My application was developed with VS 2005 with Framework 2.0 and CR 10.
My Windows vista is install with framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5. 
Windows 7 is also came with 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 by default.

I do notice one difference between Windows 7 and Vista. 
When a call is made to the report, a temp rpt is created in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp folder.
In Vista, no matter how many times the report is called in a session, only 1 rpt file will be created.
In Win 7, every call to the report will created 1 rpt file.
This is the only difference I see so far. Could this be the cause of report load failure? 
If so, what's the workaround?

An extract of my code as follow:


Crystal Report gives System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. T


when a crystal report for same id is opened again at same time or refreshed then it gives the

"System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt."

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

How do I find the file path from a namespace.class name?


I'm programatically looking ito a .aspx file and getting the file class name declared in its CodeBehind. For example, when analyzing myFile.aspx I read in its Page Directive and found its CodeBehind equals "myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb". Then I use the code below:


Dim Assm As System.Reflection.Assembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadFrom("myApplication\bin\myApplication.dll")
Dim ClassType As Type = Assm.GetType("myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb")
' myBaseType = "myApplication.Forms.BasePage"
Dim myBaseType As System.Type = ClassType.BaseType


Now I want to read the BaseFile (class = myApplication.Forms.BasePage). However, to read in this file, I need I need to get its full path instead of its namespace.class hiearchy. In this case, the BasePage is wrapped in a different namespace declaration thus I cannot just change the '.' to '\' in order to get the path.

How can I get the path of BasePage so I can read it? Thank you - Frank

System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Could not find installable ISAM.


Hi, i got the following error while i am trying to get my web application to run on windows server 2003. I've installed 2007 data access components on windows server 2003 but the web application does not seem to work. The codes that i use is as follows:

string strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" + address + ";Extended Properties=Excel 12.0;"; OleDbConnection objConn = new OleDbConnection(strConn); string strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [Sheet 1$]"; OleDbCommand objCmd = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, objConn);

OleDbDataReader oddReader = null;


oddReader = objCmd.ExecuteReader();







I've read a lot of forum posts and almost all of them mentioned ab out the connectionstring being wrong. However, when i ran the codes on my local machine, there were no errors. The error only show when i was running on windows server 2003.

I've underlined where the error is pointing to. Please advise. Thanks
