Problems with CrystalReportViewer after SP5!


Hello members!

After having Problems with Crystal Reports we upgraded the pc of a customer and my developer machine (VS2010) to Service pack5.

The application is divided into different regions (ribbon bar, mainregion, state bar, ..) and the content is added to the region via Prism mechanisms. The report viewer is loaded into the main region. The view in the main region treats the different views like a register.
When I open a second view that is loaded into the main region, the view with the CRViewer gets deactivated and the other form is active. When I switch back to the view on which the CRViewer is placed, the view stays blank.

Closing and reopening of the View with the CRViewer makes the CRViewer visible again. Switching between the different views makes the CRViewer blank.

I checked if it is something in the code and copied the same assemblies to a computer without any Crystal report service pack (version Started the program, open different views and the CRViewer is visible evertime.

On my dev machine (SP5 installed) i tried to create a new CRViewer when the view is activated but this approach was without any luck. The view stays blank.

Did someone of you had any similar problems?

Thanks for your help.
