Export Crystal Report Crash Application from C# 4.0 App. Throw Unhandled exception

Using C# 4.0 Winform Application(32 bit) with Crystal Report 2011 with Crystal report .Net runtime "CRRuntime_32bit_13_0_16".

During exporting report into PDF. An unhandled win32 exception occurred.

A few time this works and next time throw unhandled error as below

Problem signature:

Problem Event Name: APPCRASH

if (!File.Exists(fileName))

{ if (m_ReportDocument != null)


return false;

    That is normal behaviour, The engine is only capable of previewing, exporting or printing one report at a time.

    Work around is to spawn a thread for each output type. Or create a CR dll that you can pass a report to to do the job.

    I need to know how to display the report in WinForm, I have used various versions of Crystal previously but with this I'm lost, not

    that libraries must be added in reference and type of View control.

    Thank you,

    CrystalActiveXReportViewer cr = new CrystalActiveXReportViewer();

    cr.ReportSource = "X:\\AppCropaExpress_VS2015\\Reportes\\Manifiesto.rpt";


    // control para ver reporte

    axCR.ReportSource = "X:\\AppCropaExpress_VS2015\\Reportes\\Manifiesto.rpt";

    • Hi Antonio,

      Code you are using is using the RDC and ActiveX viewer.

      Create a new Windows Form project.

      Depending on the version of VS set the Project to 4.x Full Framework, not the Client.

      On the form click on Tool Bar, add Crystal Reports Viewer to the list by Choose Item....

      Framework tab and select CrystalReportsViewer version 13.

      Drop the Viewer onto the form and then add the Engine and Shared to start with.

      You can just add the viewer and use it to open reports, it has basic abilities.

      Search for KBA 2163438 or 2281780, I have attached sample app's for printing or DB and Parameters.

      Either one of them will get you going...
