Intermittent Hang in Crystal Reports 10 for Visual Studio 2005


Our Windows application uses Crystal Reports 10.2 for Visual Studio 2005 (version: 10.2.3600.0).

One of our users is reporting an intermittent hang. It only happens when she runs our application on her machine. If she runs our application on a terminal server, the hang does not occur.

The version of various DLL's on her system:

crpe32.dll -

CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.dll - 10.2.9700.0

I obtained a hang dump and analyzed it with WinDbg. The dump shows 2 interesting threads.

0 - main thread - blocking waiting on a lock

10 - Crystal Reports background thread - waiting for ufmanager.dll to post message to UI thread.

holds 3 locks with these critical sections:



<Unloaded_STUI.dll> (contention count 1)

Can someone help me fix this user's hang? I'll be happy to supply the full dump (325 MB uncompressed).
