Crystal 2011 and Windows 7 - cannot prompt for parameters

Roughly 3 weeks ago I became unable to use Crystal reports 11 reports that have parameters. I typically prompt for dates, departments etc. I am using Windows 7 and it doesn't matter what type of ODBC data source I am pointing to. I have the same issues wether I am pointing to a MS SQL Server or a local MS Access database. I have removed Crystal and -reinstalled it using SP2.

I cannot link this to anything specific in terms of patches etc. Does the parameter prompt use IE? Java?

Please assist.

Brian

    Hi Brian,

    Does it happen with static or dynamic parameters?

    And, does the prompt screen come up if you create a new report in CR 2011?
