Prompting for parameters opens in IE


Hi there

I hope someone is able to assist with a problem we have been having for the last 2 years:

Certain of our machines are XP and other Windows 7 - our application uses Crystal reports which works well on XP. On the Win 7 machines the Prompting screen for parameters now opens with IE and no longer passes parameters to the reports to run.

I have Crystal 2008 which I use to develope reports and all works well in the report designer but when accessed by the application on a Windows 7 machine nothing works. I do not have access to the application source code but think it is using the runtime files installed with Business Objects XI.

c:\program Files (x86)\Business Objects\Common\3.5\

I think it has something to do with security settings but cannot find any solutions from Microsoft

The only reference I have found to this problem was a discussion/message posted on this forum : - I have tried this process as detailed without any success on various machines

Any help would be really appreciated.
