Failed to load database information


I have an application that works with CR9 runtime (CR9redist.msi) and MSDE 2000 database on windows XP without a problem. When i try to transfer the application to Server 2008 x64 machine with CR9 runtime installed but with SQLExpress 2008 it fails when invoking CR. I've changed the connection string in application config file, merged application database with SQLExpress and databases are correctly invoked and I can browse the data within the application but when CR is invoked (printing) it gives the following error:

Error in file


Failed to load database information.

Is there a an easy way to reslove the problem without touching the application itself.
