Why won't the Report Viewer work when launched from a C# console application?

I get the following error in Visual Studio 2015 when attempting to display a report in the Crystal Reports Viewer, from a C# console application:

ContextSwitchDeadlock occurred Message: Managed Debugging Assistant 'ContextSwitchDeadlock' has detected a problem in 'E:\PS_SwDev\Lib.Net2.0\CrystalNETLib\CRNL_Console\bin\Debug\CRNL_Console.vshost.exe'. Additional information: The CLR has been unable to transition from COM context 0x28e0e00 to COM context 0x28e1308 for 60 seconds. The thread that owns the destination context/apartment is most likely either doing a non pumping wait or processing a very long running operation without pumping Windows messages. This situation generally has a negative performance impact and may even lead to the application becoming non responsive or memory usage accumulating continually over time. To avoid this problem, all single threaded apartment (STA) threads should use pumping wait primitives (such as CoWaitForMultipleHandles) and routinely pump messages during long running operations.

My application, CRNL_Console.exe, reads the report parameters from the command line, then creates an instance of my class, CrystalNETJob, passing it the parameters. CrystalNETJob then uses my Crystal interface library, CrystalNETLib, to perform the operation (view the report). The viewer window (titled PreviewDlg) displays, and pops up a small, title-less window which reads, "Please wait while the document is processing."

The pertinent portion of the Visual Studio Output Window contains:

Anyone have any ideas?
