Error on installation (Crystal Reports 2008 and Windows 7)

Hello,

I'm trying to install Crystal Reports 2008 on a Windows 7 laptop. Receiving Error 1904, Module C:\PROGRAM FILES\BUSINESS OBJECTS\BUSINESSOBJECTS ENTERPRISE 12.0\win32_x86\ReportConvTool.dll failed to register. This seems like a premissions error, but I have full admin rights on this system.

We are starting training next week and I need to get the software installed.

Any help you can provide would be great!

Thanks!

    Crystal Reports 2008 and Windows 7 are not happy bedmates. Do a search on them and you will find additional information, including service packs.

    Usually the problem caused by Data Execution Prevention. Here is what you can try:

    1. Click Start

    2. Right click Computer Name

    3. Select Properties

    4. Click Advanced System Settings

    5. Go to Advanced Tab

    6. Click Settings in Performance section

    7. Select Data Execution Prevention Tab

    8. Check Turn On DEP for essential Windows Programs and services only
