Crystal Reports XI connection problems - after updating to SQL Server 2008



We have some ASP.NET 2.0 Applications that call some CR XI report files with parameters to generate PDF Files. After upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to 2008 the apps hang when trying to generate the PDFs. Some research with Fiddler showed that ever time a 401 Error is raised. Calling the reports directly from CR Designer with the same connection values and Parameter shows the appropriate data that means the log-in data iare functioning.

I already tried switching the data source driver from OLE DB to SQL Native - no effect!

Can it be that CR XI does not work with SQL Server 2008? Or is there an update for CR XI and SQL Server 2008?

Because we are in a hurry I hope somebody can solve my problem(s) ...?!

Thanks in advance,
