CR 2008 on Server 2008 R2 vs Windows Server 2003


I have posted a similar question before but have not beeen able to come up with a solution.

We recently purchased cr2008 designer sp5 and installed it on server 2008 r2 and server 2003. We have web pages where CR is embedded in the code showing the report. This works fine on server 2003, also works fine on development desktop BUT does not work on server 2008 r2.

The application works but when time to show the CR itsself there is just a blank page with no error messages. I have replcated the code both using vs2005 and vs2008 and none of them are working when it comes to show report.

IIS is configured to run 32bit mode and classic (on server 2008 r2). Applications are comiled with x86 target.

We also have windows applications (without user interfaces) that loops through data base and saves crystal report as .pdf documents to folders to folders and they do work either.

I have been working on this for the last couple fof weeks and I am clueless.

Any ideas where to start looking and what to try? Any any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
