I developed a simple web applicaiton wth crystal report created using "SAP Crystal Reports, version for Microsoft Visual Studio" (

I downloaded file from SAP website.

    You don't need the merge modules, and only a 32 bit version exists.

    You need to debug what is causing the error, likely permissions either on the CR Viewer folder, the location of the report files or a dependency missing.

    Use Fiddler or something similar to debug.
