Export to PDF -cr8.5 -DEsinger versus runtime

We have a very interesting problem. We are using CR 8.5 (Sp3), and we have a report which load images from DB (SQL server db). The report-export to PDF does not work in runtime if you have in the same page 2 different records (it does work if you have for each record a dedicated page -so one record per page and the export works). From designer it does work in all cases. Looking further we found out that the designer calls the ExportModeller.dll and the CRXF_PDF.dll, BUT from runtime the export calls only the ExportModeller.dll. Also if i change the paper size in the design (and use a paper which will fit only one record per page), will also work. Last if i select records with out images the report will work properly. So the problem is the load of the images in the same page.

IMPORTANT NOTICE -there are 2 subreports that loads the images in the detail section

Can you tell me if i can make that work in runtime?

    CR 8.5 is 10 Plus years old, no patches or anything else available now.

    All I can suggest is to figure out why crxf_pdf.dll cannot be found at runtime.

    Good luck

    I concur with Don. Your best option will be to upgrade to CR XI R2A (11.5). You will still be out of support, but at least you'll have what was the latest version of the RDC (assuming that is the SDK you are using)...

    (CR 8.5 was the very 1st version to use crxf_pdf.dll to export to PDF, so not particularly "stable" - I suspect)

    You can obtain an eval of CR XI R2A from here:
