Reports are not opening at all,though my other projects in same platform running smoothly in windows 8.1 pro operating system.

CR 9 has been out of support for 10+ years and so has VS 6. And the RDC is end of life, time to upgrade to .NET

Neither of which are Windows 8.1 aware, time to upgrade to VS 2010 or above and CR for VS .NET

Likely missing a dependency, use Debugdiag to see if it helps or use Process Monitor on the working and non-working PC's and compare the runtime.

CR for VS is here:

Good luck
