I am writing an application in Visual Basic 5.0 that calls Crystal Reports 4.6.

I used to be able to do this on my old PC which ran Windows XP, but now when I try to do it on my new PC which is running Windows 7 (64-bit), I can't add the Crystal Report component to my VB project - I get a registry error.

I would love to know how to overcome this. I know I'm using outdated software, but I'm really hoping there's a solution that doesn't involve upgrading.

Thanks very much for your help.

Visual Basic 5.0 and Crystal Reports 4.6 are not 64 bit application, so are not supported on Windows 7.


Try to Install Crystal Reports 4.6 seperately...
Note: if there is higher version of CR installed in the system, CR4.6 may not get installed...


And install it as Admin ;)
