Could Crystal Reports XI R2 work on Windows Server 2008?

I'm trying to use CR XI R2 on Win 2008. The problem is when executing code "ReportDocument.ExportToStream(type)", the process (asp.net) stops there without any response. No timeout, no exception. I tested it on Sql Server 2005 and 2008, got the same problem. I can operate CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument object in code and there is no problem with DB connection.

Can anyone help me? Or do you encounter this issue? If you confirm that CR XI R2 can not work with Win 2008, please let me know. Thanks!

    Right now, there is only CR 10.5 (bundles with .NET 2008) that will work with Windows Server 2008. Within the next three months or so, SP 1 will be released for CR 2008 and that will work on Windows Server 2008.

    I don't think there are any plans of updating any other versions of CR to work with Windows Server 2008.

    • That should work as a 32 bit app. Only CR 10.2 (bundles with .NET 2005) and CR 10.5 (bundles with .NET 2008) are 64 bit. What issues are you seeing - I assume it's with CR XI r2(?) on the Window 2003 64bit OS?
