'No Server Connection' in Crystal standard SAP Layouts


I was hoping you could shed some light on the following issue that I recently started having on Crystal Reports.

I have modified layouts for days on this specific Server and DB and did not get this issue before. Today when I open up my saved and the Standard SAP Sales Order Crystal Layout, I see that there is 'No Server Connection' in the Repository Explorer.

This is true for other Layouts, Reports and other DB's. I can open a blank Crystal report and create connections in the Database Expert - but my old connections are gone.

Your insight would be very helpful.

    In the end I did not need the Repository Explorer. I still had access to the field explorer.

    After I made some changes to the Layout and tested I got the following error, which might be part of my earlier issues:

    "Could not load file or assembly





    'or one of its dependencies.

    The parameter is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070057 (E_INVALIDARG))"

    I solved this with clearing the temp folder.
