ERROR: An communication error occured. Printing will be stopped.

I am using Visual Studio 2005 Crystal Report for creating report.My environment is IIS 6.0 (with HTTP compression enabled), using PrintControl.cab provided by CR itself.When the HTTP compression disabled, it works and print successfully...but...when i turn on the HTTP compression i always get that error message..I already tried other approach for HTTP compression using blowery's httpmodule and exclude some files (the aspx and Printcontrol.cab..even with all Printcontrol.cab's content such as PrintControl.dll, PrintControl.inf, unicows.dll, etc) , still got the same error..I also install the Hotfix/Patch from CR called "CrystalReports10_NET_EmbeddedInstall.msi" (~ 50 mb), because it's pdf says that the error message caused by SSL mode which CR is case-sensitive to lowercase..although i am not using SSL i thought the case-sensitive problem might be the case...but i'm wrong and still got the same error....Conclusion: It seems PrintControl.cab have problem with HTTP compression..I need HTTP compression and printing from web and both cannot co-exist peacefully.Anyone know what should i do?Or please fix that problem...need it badly and now frustated..Thanks..

    Use PDF print mode instead of ActiveX and see if that works.

    Unfortunately it didn't work either. I have tried both print mode, it seems printing report have problem with HTTP compression enabled.

    I was to give up on this 😔

    By the way i tried SQL Reporting Service 2005 (.rdl and .rdlc), both work with HTTP compression when printing report..so it seems the best solution is to move my reports until Crystal Report solve this problem.

    Thanks anyway.
