Crystal Reports 2010 .NET 4.0 COM class factory 80000003 error


I am having the following error occur on a PDF generated by Crystal Reports via an ASP.NET 4.0 web page when deployed to the server:

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {F734A321-8381-4FFD-A614-139E8906DC83} failed due to the following error: 80000003 One or more arguments are invalid (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80000003).

The offending code is:

ReportDocument reportdoc = new ReportDocument();

I am using the following DLLS:



These are both version 13.0.2000.0 and I'm also referencing CrystalDecisions.Web and CrystalReports.ReportSource in the project (also the same version 13.0.2000.0).

I am targeting the project to build as an x86 per suggestions as well.

I have installed the CRRuntime_32bit_13_0 to the server (running Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7) and have verified that there is only one .config on the web app, yet I still receive this error. I have tried reinstalling the runtime multiple times. I have not seen any installation log files generated (not sure where to look)

Please advise.
