Crystal Embedded 10 and Windows server 2008 R2 (x64)

Crystal Embedded 10 and Windows server 2008 R2 (x64)

So, I was able to install the CR Enterprise Embedded 10 and after removing a dependency, have the service running. The problem is that from my web site running classic ASP, when calling any Crystal report, I am getting the following error in the IIS logs:
2015-10-13 20:30:40 GET ...path to report|-|ASP_0115|Unexpected_error 443 - Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+MSIE+10.0;+Windows+NT+6.1;+WOW64;+Trident/6.0) 500 0 0 327

and also the following in the Windows application logs:
Error: File ...filename and path... Unexpected error. A trappable error (C0000005) occurred in an external object. The script cannot continue running..

I know that perhaps this version is not supported, but has anyone figured this out yet?

RE: Crystal Embedded 10 and Windows server 2008 R2 (x64)

This software is long out of support so there is no guarantee you'll get it to work. However, here's a few things to check:

1. This is 32-bit software even though the server is 64-bit. Make sure that you have the 32-bit database clients installed and, if you're using ODBC, that the connections have been created in the 32-bit ODBC Administrator.

2. See whether you can configure the CRE services to run in compatibility mode that will provide compatibility on Win 2008 for an earlier version of Windows.
