Plugin SecWindowsAD does not exist

I am building a web site that will call reports to be run from Crystal Enterprise and saved to a unmanaged disk. If I run it using the "SecEnterprise" authentication it runs fine, but if I run it using the "SecWindowsAD" authentication I get the following error:

-


Plugin SecWindowsAD does not exist.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Plugin SecWindowsAD does not exist.

Stack Trace includes:

COMException (0x80042a63): Plugin SecWindowsAD does not exist.

LogonToCE.Logon() in C:\RptPkg\App_Code\LogonToCE.vb:37

LogonToCE..ctor() in C:\RptPkg\App_Code\LogonToCE.vb:28

It is failing on

ceSession = ceSessionMng.Logon(user, pass, serverName, authType)

where:

- ceSession is an EnterpriseSession

- ceSessionMng is a SessionMgr

- authType is string and = SecWindowsAD

The references that I am using are:

- CrystalDecisions.Enterprise

- CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Desktop.Report

- CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework

- CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore

- CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.PluginManager

- CrystalDecisions.Shared

I've tried adding in CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Auth.secWindAD, but the error is still seen. Any ideas on what dll I need?

I am working in VS 2005 and Crystal Enterprise 10.0.

Thanks.

    Try

    authType = "secWinAD"

    Also, CE10 is not supported with VS.NET 2005 so I can not guarentee you will not run into any issues using those products together.

    Hi Ryan,

    Do you have Windows AD enabled on the CE 10 Server?

    Can you test this using the CMC and a user to confirm it works in InfoView?

    Thank you

    Thanks guys! Using secWinAD worked, and I had neglected to allow the user access to the folder, so trying to run it through CE showed me that error.
