Crystal Reports setup problem (?)



I have recently taken over the role of creating/updating our Crystal Reports and have of course installed the software on my PC just as is explained in the installation guide and have set up the ODBC datalink.

I decided to leave it installed on the old user's PC until I got it working properly just in case I had any problems. Good job I did.

The reports we create are used by a bespoke software called Access Supply Chain.

When I create/modify a report on this newly installed instance, save it to our reports folder and reference it in Supply Chain, the report only blinks on-screen for a fraction of a second and then vanishes.

If I then go to the old machine and open the report there and re-save, it works fine.

I've checked settings between both machines and can't find anything that differs.; I'm possibly missing something very simple.

Could anyone give me any clues as to what the problem is?

Many thanks
