CR9 and VS.NET 2003: free license could not be obtained



I have created some minor reports to be used in a windows service

First time I am messing around with CR, very easy to use etc, but I receive the below

error (free license could not be obtained)


A Crystal Reports job failed because a free license could not be obtained in

the time allocated. More licenses can be purchased direct from Crystal

Decisions or through the Crystal Decisions Online Store.


VS.NET has been registered correctly and I can see a keycode when I open the

help -> about dialog box in VS

Do I need to buy extra licenses? I was under the impression that the CR

version which came with VS 2003 was free to use?

I know should have read the FM, but ...

Problem with installation/deployment or?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
