I have an error after the print of a report in the viewer crystal report

the print is ok, but i have the error message:

An error occurred on the server. Printing will be stopped. Would you like to view the error information?

I answer Yes, and Internet explorer open the file PrintControlIError.htm and this file is empty.

Development Environment:

- Visual studio 2008

- Crystal Report 2008 (sp3)

- SQL Server 2008

- Windows seven

- IIS 7

I have used the example of the web site SAP called:

NET-VB2005 CR2008 Set DB Using

nb: I have just change the printMode (to activeX)

What is the solution to not have this error message?

This is a very critical issue to us, so if anyone has the solution please help me.

In IIS 7, when i change the Pipeline mode to classic, i have not the error message, and the print works.

So i do that.

But the recommandation of microsoft is that the pipeline must be in integarted for the performances.

Do you know this recommandation?
