Crystal Reports 11.5 in Windows 2008 R2-64 bit Server

We have a few applications, which use the crystal reports 11.5. I have given the details of assembly reference given to application.

Referenced assembly Version

-


-


CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine 11.5.3700.0

CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework 11.5.3300.0

CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore 11.5.3300.0

CrystalDecisions.Shared 11.5.3700.0

System Environment

-


Windows Server 2008 R2 - 64 bit

We installed the "crxir2_sp4_full_bld_0-20008684.exe" and then "CRYSTALREPORTS06_0-20008684.EXE" as per the instruction given by SAP-Crystal Reports support team. But still we get the same error. The error details are given below.

" System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument' threw an exception. ---> 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 http://www.businessobjects.com/support for more information."

Getting the application running in 64 bit machine is a top priority task for us. It is affecting our client's business as well.

Quick response is highly appreciated.

    Hi,

    Take a look at below blog, which clearly states that

    Crystal Reports XI Release 2 (11.5) is not supported with any Service Pack for Crystal Reports on Windows Server 2008.

    [Crystal Reports XI Release 2 support of Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7|Crystal Reports XI Release 2 support of Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7]

    It may or may not work.

    For deploying a CR .NET web app on 64 bit machine, take a look at below blog

    Also, make sure you compile your application in 32 bit ( x86 ) mode only. XI R2 is 32 bit only.

    If you want to move to Visual Studio 2010 then download CR for VS 2010, it has a 64 bit runtime package and fully supported ( almost ) on 64 bit OS's and running 64 dependencies, IIS, Printers, DB Clients, etc.

    See the bottom of this page for CR for VS 2010 - http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/boc/crystalreports-dotnet
