Strange activity CRBasic VS 2008 x64 on Win2008 x64


Hi All,

First, I apologize for my English:)

I have a strange problem with CR VB2008 x64 runtime on W2008R2 x64. Problem is similiar to others on this forums, but I didn't find the solution.


On W2008 x64 I installed applicationmssqlserver2008 x64 CRx64. Version CR is Basic 10.5. Installation process of CR runtime was sucessfull. Application was compile in mode "AnyCPU".

Asp application and SQLServer cooperate correcty as long as CR is called. But when I want to create report, Crystal show unexpectedly note:

"The report you request requires further information" and shows text boxes:

- server name: localhost

- database: empty field

- username: sa

- passwd: empty field

Strange this is that:

a) the fields appear

b) fields: server name, database, user are 'read only'. Is not possible write text into this fields.

b) in 32bits environment on win2008x32 (app+ sqlserver x32+ CR x86) the same application works perfectly and stable.

I know, that CR VB2008 x64 works native in 64 bits. Because has not the need of the installation CR x32 and set 32 bits mode on IIS.

Advise me please, what I do wrong.

Best regards
