Crystal Reports Active X Viewer 64-Bit

Hi All,

I am searching for some information regarding support of the Crystal Reports Active X viewer with 64-Bit Internet Explorer (version 8)

We use Cyrstal Report 9, 10, 11 and 11.5 on our clients servers and have no issues with the 32 bit version of Internet Explorer (including on 64-bit operating systems). We have one client attempting to use 64 bit Internet Explorer 8 but this is not showing any reports.

Even when having manually installed the Active X dll's it still does not work.

Can someone advise if this set up is possible/supported?

As I understand it, it is not possible.

Regards

Matthew Haines

    To all those interested

    I found further details and the issue lies with IE 64-bit as it does not support any 32-bit extensions or activex controls

    Hello,

    All of those versions are 32 bit only and I doubt 64 bit IE will support 32 bit ActiveX controls. No solution for you.

    Possibly moving to CR For VS 2010 and the Cr .NET assemblies may work.

    64 bit IE is not very stable and not many people use it. I suggest you recommend staying away from it at this time. Or at lease CR doesn't like it either.

    Good luck
