CR2008 Cannot report on IIS Log file data source


I have CR2008 (SP0) and CRXIR2 installed on a Vista desktop. I can create reports against IIS Log files using XIR2. When I attempt to make the data connection using CR2008, I go through the same dialog to select log files and dates but at the end it displays "no items found" and I have no table connection that I can add to the report.

My primary source is IIS 6 log files on a server using a mapped drive. I have also tried the same using local IIS 7 on the same Vista pc that Crystal is installed on and neither work using CR2008; both work fine from CRXIR2.

I also opened from CR2008 an IIS log report created in CRXIR2 and oddly the report runs from 2008 but I cannot modify the data connection as I again just receive "no items found" if I attempt to establish another connection.

I've tried a re-install and I've confirmed in Crystal setup that I have installed Web Activity Logs as Data source.
