Crystal Reports Start Up Error:

I have installed Crystal Reports on my machine but every time I try to start it, the message:

Runtime error!

The program ...\crw32.exe

Abnormal program termination.

What can I do to make it work on my machine?

    You need Admin Rights to solve this problem.

    I have installed and re installed it over a dozen times. I have also tried the repair function but they did not have any result.

    • What Operating System are you using?

      And what version of Crystal are you using and what patches have you installed?

      Do you have Anti-virus software running and have you looked in their logs to see if it was denied access to some dependency?

      Thank you

    I have solved the problem.

    I have created a new local admin account and logged in.

    Then ran setup and strangely it did not appear in the start menu though it was installed.

    I ran setup again and repaired the installed version and it appeared in the start menu

    Now it works, don't know how, don't know why.

    Thanks for you responses!
