Crystal Reports Windows Server 2008 p2sodbc.dll

Crystal Reports Windows Server 2008 p2sodbc.dll

I have a legacy VB6 application that I'm trying to migrate to Windows Server 2008 from Windows Server 2003. This application uses a Crystal Report to send information from a database to a printer on the server. The report is stored on the server. I'm getting a generic Crystal Report error "[20536] [Unable to logon to server]"

Here is the original code:


Call CrystalReport1.LogOnServer("pdsodbc.dll", "PickMgr", g_sDBName, g_sDBUserID, g_sDBPassword) 

After some research I have determined that pdsodbc.dll has been succeeded by p2sodbc.dll, so I updated the code


Call CrystalReport1.LogOnServer("p2sodbc.dll", "PickMgr", g_sDBName, g_sDBUserID, g_sDBPassword) 

But I'm having the same issue. I know my credentials and permissions are fine and I'm fresh out of ideas. Does anyone have experience with this?
