Crystal Reports 2008 Runtime, Windows Server 2008 64-Bit AND SharePoint2007


Hi Guys,

here i'm again. 😊

Well I'm developing on a 32-Bit OS with Crystal Reports 2008. I've deployed my solution to SharePoint, but when i try to call a report in the aspx-Website i get the following error:

Exception Details: CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.LoadSaveReportException: An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime. Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient, or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly. Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium) required. Please go to for more information.

Here are the technical details:

- Windows Server 2008 (64Bit)

- IIS7

- Microsoft Office Server 2008 (64Bit)

- Crystal Reports 2008 SP3

I've read, that there isn't a 64-Bit runtime version of CR2008. Then i tryed the two following suggestions i found in this forum:

1. Try to run the IIS-Application-Pool in 32-Bit-Mode -> This don't work, because SharePoint then throws a "Internal Server Error - Code 500" (no SharePoint Sites are available).

2. Try to compile the Visual Studio Project as 32-Bit -> This don't work, because SharePoint could not load the assembly

Well, are there any other hints, suggestions or experiences how i could get this to work?

Thanks in advance,
