Using crpe, shipped with Crystal12, the system hangs while navigating trees


We have an old product built with Crystal 9 and which uses the crpe32/COM interface for report generation from within our C++ program. I am evaluating upgrading to use crystal 2008. I notice that crpe32 is not supported, but is still shipped with crystal 2008 as a legacy dll.

Using the crpe32 that is shipped with crystal 2008, most of our existing code works, but when I traverse down a tree view, the entire system hangs. It looks like crystal engine is going into an infinite loop within one of mfc/gdiplus dll.

Any ideas of how to solve this would be very helpful. If this can't be solved and we have to move to using the .net framework from within our code, are there any good pointers/articles on this so that we can evaluate the effort it takes.
