Crystal Report always hang when running on a web application

I develop a report for my web application, and for some reason, it always hang if I try to generate the report from the production server.

I identify the culprit as the printer being used in the Crystal Report. By default, the report uses a network printer, which is not available on the production server. If I change the printer to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" or "No Printer", it seems to work.

But what is weird is that I've been using the network printer to develop the report for other projects and was deployed to other server (which does not have the network printer as well), and it seems to run fine. Only in this server it does not work. Is there any configuration setting that I've to do in the server?

Crystal Report version:

Visual Studio 2015 Update 1

    Moved to CR for .NET forum.

    What version of the CR for Vs or BI .NET SDK are you using?

      Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 (x86) version 10.2.0 is not in my DEV PC.

      But it was installed on both app servers.

      OK I'll try using ProcessMonitor to see.
