If you installed Crystal into the VB40/Reports directory, you will
experience some problems. Don't do it. Let Crystal install itself
to the default directory (usually CRW) and things should go alright.
Check that you aren't having mixups with dll versions. That's a source
of lots of confusion. I also know that for some reason, sometimes the
OCX that ships with Crystal 4.5 does not replace the version of the OCX
that comes with VB4. You can get it a couple of ways. Copy it off the
disks or CD into a temp directory, then hit it with the DOS expand utility
and then copy it to the windows/system directory. Another way is to copy
it from the CRW/WKCSETUP dirctory. You'll get this directory when you
install Crystal and answer yes to the prompt about using Crystal on
other stations on the network.
One last thing I can think of could be a 16 bit vs 32 bit mixup. Make
sure you aren't trying to use the 16 bit OCX when you really meant to
use the 32 bit one.
