Crystal reports only print in portrait from windows server 2012

We have an issue where from our application, all the reports only print in portrait no matter what orientation we specify, from a windows server 2012 machine. It works correctly on windows 7 and windows server 2008.

We have the latest crystal reports runtime on that machine...what are we missing? and has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks!

Sharon

    What language was your application written in and what version of the Crystal SDK does it use? Unless it was written recently using the latest version of the SDK, there's a good chance that it's not compatible with Windows Server 2012.

    We are using C# - Visual Studio 2013 and we create the reports as part of visual studio. We have the latest development version for Visual Studio

      Sharon.... I am having a problem with a "Shadow Box" around my form... I'm wondering if your print in portrait is the same as my "Shadow Box".... I have posted a discussion with examples if you wouldn't mind looking at it I would appreciate it.... My title is Shadow Box Around Crystal Report.. I talked to Ludek a year ago and was unable to resolve it.... It works OK in VS 2008 CR version 10.5 but shows up like the examples in VS 2013 CR Version 13.... Thanks for your time...

    I've similary problem - CR Runtime print on some computers landscape report in portrait.

    On some computers print properly and others do not. Preview and export to pdf works always correctly. My customer has Windows 10 and installed Crystal Reports Runtime Service Pack 16.

    Did anyone ever find a resolution to this? I have a number of reports that are marked as Landscape and have the No Printer option selected in VS. When i run the report it previews fine in landscape mode but when I send it to the printer, it prints in portrait. I am able to export the report to PDF and view and print in landscape mode without issue. This only occurs in Windows 10 machines for me.

    • Not being rude, just letting you know to include all info. I could say you were rude for not including it either...

      There were updates to the WPF viewer in SP 17 which I could have suggested the first thing to try...
