Disable crystal reports XI read only state

We are having errors running crystal reports XI with pervasive v11 (32bit and 64bit).

We receive database connector error and database vendor code: -5099 when running reports that utilize stored procedures. We do not have the errors from crystal when running in pervasive v10.

I have found other people have had this issue with crystal X and resolved it by disabling the crystal reports read only state by altering the registry entries for crystal X (they added a DWORD entry “AccessMode “= 0).

Has anyone done this for crystal XI. If so where did you add it in the registry? We would like to do it in HKEY_Local_Machine .

    You have another identical post to this. Why create this one?

    • I should add something here which may be the reason why it never worked. Crystal requires a cursor to hold the data in when using SP's. I have never tried this or even looked it up actually, but if Pervasive has the ability to use Cursors then it may work in CR Designer.

      And the last SELECT Statement is where CR expects the result set to be in. So you may need to dump your data into a temp table in the SP and then CR should be able to report off it.

      Also, use ODBC, the Pervasive OLE DB provider simply connects to MS's OLE DB for ODBC so all you are doing is adding another layer on top of ODBC.
