I created a crystal report using crystal report 8  put it on the web and there is only one computer is getting this error when trying  to access the report from the web and below is the error.."The Seagate software Activex Viewer is unable to create it's resource objects. To rectify this problem, please install Internet Explorer 4.0 or Install DCOM for Window 95 and the latest Microsoft scripting engine.

the solution link doesnt work and i really need the fix.
My user is a little newer than the original post.

He is on windows XP Pro, SP3, IE 8.0...your help is appreciated. Thanks.

RE: The Seagate software Activex Viewer is unable to create it's resource

Do you have other users on IE 8.0?  I haven't worked with it yet but that may be where the issue is.  There has been a lot of security stuff wrapped around ActiveX controls in the newer versions of IE.

Try having the user add the site where your report is located to the Trusted Sites in IE.

A computer only does what you actually told it to do - not what you thought you told it to do.
