Error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtim

Hi all,

I'm using VS 2008 to create a business app that uses Crystal Reports to display and print reports. I'm distributing it mostly to Win7 Pro 64 bit machines.

The program is working on ALMOST every machine, but I just installed it on a new laptop, and whenever I access the Crystal part of the program, I get the classic "Either The Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly".

Googling this error, the UNIVERSAL answer is "Target your VB application at x86 only." The problem is, I ALREADY DID THAT. And this program works on all my OTHER Win7 64 bit machines. It's just this one.

Can anyone help? I'm at my wits end. I've tried installing, uninstalling, installing while right-clicking and choosing Run as Admin...

Thanks,

Andy Oliner

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm using the Crystal Reports that's included in VS 2008, although I do also have Crystal XI installed on my personal workstation, on which I am developing.

    Andrew, thank you for your post.  I had the same issue and struggled on it for 2 days before stubbling on your answer.  It worked perfectly!  Thanks again.
