Calling CR Viewer from our application

Calling CR Viewer from our application

Calling CR Viewer from our application

For over 13 years ( using Crystal 6 through 11.5)we have called the viewer through an ActiveX call using this code and now it is something no longer available to CR2008 > . We still create the report fine but can no longer call the browser to open the rpt with the active x. Anyone no what we need to do to get this working. I am having a difficult time figuring it out since this is most likely a call to a web folder.

<%@ Language=VBScript CodePage=65001 %>



reportName = "../xreports/" & trim(request("rname"))

Set objFactory = CreateObject("CrystalReports.ObjectFactory")

Dim path, iLen
path = Request.ServerVariables("PATH_TRANSLATED")                     
While (Right(path, 1) <> "\" And Len(path) <> 0)                      
iLen = Len(path) - 1                                                  
path = Left(path, iLen)                                               
' Create a new ReportClientDocument object
Set Session("oClientDoc") = objFactory.CreateObject("CrystalClientDoc.ReportClientDocument")

' Specify the RAS Server (computer name or IP address) to use (If SDK and RAS Service are running on seperate machines)
Session("oClientDoc").ReportAppServer = "localhost"

' Open the report object to initialize the ReportClientDocument
Session("oClientDoc").Open path & reportName

Response.Redirect "activexv.asp"


this is my activexv.asp code
