Load report failed: The device is not ready [COMException (0x80004005)]



In a deployed machine with the lastest Crystal Reports 2008 SP1 runtimes (Crystal Reports 2008 SP1 - Redist Install - Refresh) (it also happens with olders versions) I'm having the following problem:


This is a simple application that has a form with a button and one Crystal Reports Viewer. Pressing the button loads a report from the disk that uses a .xml datasource.

What does the "device is not ready" means?

I've checked the temporary files, the user has administrative rights, the form loads correctly the crystal report viewer.

The operative system is Windows XP.

Any clues of what it can be? In others computers it works just fine.

Thanks in advance.
