Link tables from an ADO.NET (XML) Dataset causes Crystal to stop working

Post Author: chrishilton

CA Forum: .NET

I'm running Cystal Reports 11.0.0.2269 on VistaI have created an XML file using C# and Visual Studio 2005 by populating a DataSet with 2 DataTables and then executing the WriteXml method (including the XmlWriteMode.WriteSchema param).I have then created a report setting my data source to ADO.NET (XML) and connection to the XML file.If I do not link my 2 tables then the report will show values from both tables but as soon as I go into the Database Expert and create a link between the tables (be that based on string, boolean or number field types) and refresh the report data, crystal crashes with the "Crystal Reports has stopped working" message. I have also tried to setup the link between by tables within the DataSet but again as soon as I attempt to run the report crystal crashes.Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.Cheers,Chris

    Hi Chris,

    Crystal XI and .NET 2005 are not supported so I have no idea what possible issues could arise.

    You need to uninstall XI and get XI Release 2 if you want to develop using .net 2005.

    It is a free upgrade so you can just download it from the businessobjects site and use your current keycode and reg number.

    Make sure to uninstall XI and reboot before installing it.

    Also, to be supported on Vista you will need to install Service Pack 2 for Crystal Reports XI R2.
