Crystal Reports :: Deploy Crystal Reports On Remote Server Without Running MSI?
Feb 15, 2010
I am considering using Crystal Report 2008 as my tool of creating reports on my webpage.The only problem which I'm facing is that I have no control of the remote server which hosts my site (besides uploading files). I can't run a MSI to deploy the CR runfiles.I can't find anywhere in the CR user manual of how to deploy the runtime files without running the msi, and I'm not even sure it's possible.Have anyone deployed CR 2008 without running the MSI and without having to register any files?
I'm getting so frustrated with not being able to find the answers to my extremely simple (or so it seems) questions.I'm using Visual Studio 2008,and I am trying to use a non-local database as my data source.This must be possible to do somehow,but I can't figure out how.It wants to be able to connect to a database,and it's not going to be able to.
with a workaround?Would it be easier to just make an asp.net page with a gridview than trying to make an actual crystal report?
When i run the application locally it works fine but when i publish it n access from it it gives the error asEither the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
I have developed few crystal reports using VS.2005 and now i want to deploy the same on my web server which is running Windows 2003 server and got installed only .net frame work 2.0.... so now i want to know how can i run those reports successfully and i have downloaded CRRedist2005_X86.msi and even crXIsp3 and 4 _net_server from business objects page and i do have Crystal Reports XI original CD.... while by using them can i run crystal reports on my web pages.
I'm new to Visual Studio.NET . I need to integrate the crystal reports into an ASP.NET application. I generated Crystal report with the help of crystal report XI developer edition(Stand alone version and NOT from the one which comes from visual studio).
How to integrate this report with the web application.
I have already generated crystal reports but i've made them static. but now i want to make the user to select the criteria for generating the reports. for eg., in one of them i want to show monthwise data so user should be able to select the month and year and that would be passed as parameter and compared to the existing data. provide me with proper exact code that can be used for giving parameters in such a report using C#.
Crystal reports are properly working on my local pc but not on server. I am using vs 2008 and install crystal report for Visual basic 2008 on server.but parameter count for CrystalReport is zero on server.
In my system Visual studio 2008 with sp1 and Crystal Reports XI Release 2.In Visaul studio 2008 ,while adding add reference it showing crystal reports version 10 instead of 11.How to solve the version problem.
I have a field in my dataset with type nvarchar(1000). when I link it to crystal reports, it converts it to a field of type string with length set to 100. As a result of that, the string in that field is being truncated on the report. How can I increase the string length to 1000? (I already checked the "Can grow" option).
The application basically displays a list of reports and allows the user to select a particular report to run. Once the report is selected, the appropriate parameter screen is displayed. The parameter screen contains options for displaying the report either as an Excel Spreadsheet or a PDF document.
When I run the application from within visual studio, it works fine. The reports display correctly in both formats.
THe problem is that once I publish the application (via msi installation file) to a Windows 2003 web server, the reports won't display. THe system just hangs. I added debug statements and the code is hanging during the ReportDocument.Load(Server.MapPath("/assetreport.rpt") command.
My deployment project includes the correct msm for Crystal Report 12 and the Web server also has the full blown version of Crystal Reports 12 installed.
I'm working on a site that ws developed using VS 2005 and the server where the site is running has Crystal Reports for .net 2.0 (ver 10.2.36)I will be making changes. I just ported the website to my local computer, and build the site using VS 2008, that comes with Crystal R. Basic.I haven't tested all the functionality of the site, so I'm not sure since all the pages that use C. Reports work ok.My main concern is about publishing the site I compiled to the server. Will things work, if I have Crystal R. Basic and the server has Crystal R. for .net 2.0.
Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL. ----------------------------------- This error will be display when I am try to show the Crystal Report. Can anybody tell me what Property I have to ser in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in IIS7???
to print a crystal report from the server's printer with a button on the web application.Assume that I have a ASP .NET Web Application, When i press the "print" button on the web application, the server which holds the web application prints the specific crystal report with specific data set. Is this possible? How I am going to make this happened?I am sorry to say that I'm very new to all these web programming,

i am facing an issue with crystal report when i deploy my web application in client side. I have a web application developed in visual studio 3.5. Our build machine contains crystal report version 10.5, we have published the web application and created the build to deploy in the client machine IIS. We have installed the redistribution of crystal report 11 in the client machine. we have currected the config file and all based on this. but we are getting a runtime error when the application try to load reports.
Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified
We have an old server (Win Server 2003/ IIS) that makes use of an old version of Crystal Reports for asp.net pages. I'm making a new server (Win Sever 2008 SP2/ IIS 7) that will be the replacement for the old server. I have asp.net apps working, but since I can't use the old Crystal reports install, the new one isn't doing anything for me.After installing CRRedist2008_x86, it shows some files in:
C:inetpubwwwrootaspnet_clientsystem_web2_0_50727CrystalReportWebFormViewer4 andC:Program FilesBusiness ObjectsCommon2.8inAre there any special configurations I have to do in IIS to get asp.net to recognize this stuff? Right now, I'm getting nothing.
I'm new to Crystal Reports and am just trying to add some simple reports to my web application. In the non-report pages I've been using SqlDataSources to retrieve data from the database and would like to do the same for the report pages. I saw a tutorial that indicated I could do this by explicitly setting the data source for the report in the Page_Load callback of the ASPX page as shown below:
Is there a way to create "bound" fields w/o a database, since I'll be specify the database at runtime? Or is there a way to create the ".rpt" file w/ unbound fields, that get "bound" at runtime?Or is there a better way to do this altogether?
