unable to export to pdf from crviewer


I have a code scripted in visual basic 2008 (sP1) where a report gets loaded and displayed in the the crystal viewer. My report display's in the cRViewer, however when i try to export the report to a pdf i got the following error message:

Method 'ISCREditableRTFExportFormatOptions_reserved5' on type 'CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.EditableRTFExportFormatOptionsClass' from assembly 'CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel, Version=11.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' is overriding a method that has been overridden. I have tried to export from the 'export button' as well as programmatically using the 'ExportToDisk' option. with no luck

Has anyone else come across this error or any workarrounds?

    Looks like you are using .NET 2008 with CR XI release 1 (11.0). CR XI release 1 is not supported with .NET 2008, only CR 10.5 (Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008) and CR 2008 (12.x with SP 1) work and are supported in .NET 2008. Please see [this|] wiki for more details.

    The problem you are encountering is because you are running XI (11.0) on the .NET 2.0 Framework. This will not work in a few different scenarios, one of them being exporting. You need to upgrade to XIR2 (11.5) or CR 2008 (12.0) if you are going to use the 2.0 Framework. Since you are using Visual Studio 2008, the only version of Crystal Reports that will integrate into the IDE is Crystal Reports 2008.
