Getting Error 'Invalid export DLL or export format'


Hi, we are getting the above error when exporting to Excel from Crystal Reports. Although the export is via one of our products, the process of exporting the report is controlled by the Crystal Report viewer which we have no control over.

Basic system details are as follows:

Operating system : - Windows Server 2003 R2 Service pack 2

Crystal Reports : - Crystal Reports Developer version, product type : Full

Problem summary : - When exporting a report, exporting to excel produces an error 'Invalid export DLL or export format'.

We have tried the following so far, obviously to no avail:

The Business Objects folder has been added to the PATH variable.

Crystal Reports has been deinstalled and reinstalled.

Your help in getting to the bottom of this is greatly appreciated!
