Developer Question for January 31
A Microsoft Visual Studio .NET application uses Crystal Reports 9 for Visual Studio .NET as the reporting development tool. This application connects to a Crystal Enterprise 9 system. Crystal Reports 10 is then installed on the same computer. When the CR 9 for VS .NET application is run, the following error message appears when connecting to CE 9: "Access denied. You cannot log on to an older version of the CMS." Why does this error message appear and how do you resolve it?
This error message appears because some CR 9 for VS .NET runtime files get unregistered when CR 10 is installed and the application uses the CR 10 versions of these files instead. Learn how to resolve the error.
