Crystal report access violation exception win 2008 server (.Net 2.0)

We are migrating our production server from Windows Server 2000 to windows 2008.

We are experiencing some problems with some crystal reports that were working fine on win 2000.

Those reports (version 11.5.3700) are called in a .net console application. (.NET 2.0)

We have been able to figure out that the crash occurs when the crystal report class is instantiated

This is the complete description of the exception displayed

Any idea of any patch that could solve this issue ?

The absolute 1st thing you must do is ensure that you are on SP 6 for CR XI R2. What SP are you on?

Thanks Ludek for the quick answer.

We have'nt applied any SP yet. We are in the testing phase.

Could you send us the link to that SP 6 ?

Also, should we also apply the first 5 SPs ?

OK. Good in the sense that Win 2008 came after CR 11.5, so we have to get you up to an SP that will work on WIN 2008 Server. As you have not done any updates, here is what you will need to do:

1st, download this:

2nd,download SP5

and finally SP6:

Now, this will go on your dev system. The above will not run on a client computer. To get SP 6 on a client you will need to deploy the runtime using the [MSI|] or the [MSM|]

I recommend getting to SP6 on the dev box, recompiling the app with SP6, then installing it and the SP6 runtime on the WIN 2008 OS.
