Re: VB6 - embedded report load error - lousy solution

Follow up ...

Tried setting new class id's in report.dsr's - did not work.

Finally used the Universal Windows Solution:
	Uninstalled and then reinstalled Crystal Reports.

I attempted to load a Visual Basic 6 project with 5 embedded reports and received an error for each, stating that it could not be loaded.

The error log for each report reads as follows:
Line 2: Class {BD4B4E61-F7B8-11D0-964D-00A0C9273C2A} of control BCR_5Yr was not a loaded control class.
Line 0: The file C:\Clients\profac\working\svn_repos\fpm\trunk\BCR_5Yr.Dsr could not be loaded.
(Same message for each, only the name of the .dsr changed.)

The project's .vbp file has a class that is very close, "BD4B4E53-F7B8-11D0-964D-00A0C9273C2A", the difference in the first group, which ends in "E53" rather than "E61" - the numbers are otherwise identical. The class number in the .vbp refers to craxdui.dll, the Crystal Reports 9 library.

Searched the registry for the key "BD4B4E61-F7B8-11D0-964D-00A0C9273C2A" , and found this (broken at the backslash to avoid a wordwrap problem):


Now I seem to have some options:

1. Change this default setting to BD4B4E61-F7B8-11D0-964D-00A0C9273C2A

2. Change the setting in the .vbp file to

3. Change the setting within the .dsr files to

4. Forget all this, uninstall Crystal Reports, then reinstall and patch to latest level.

5. Check the Windows XP restore points and jump back a couple of days.

Suggestions will be welcome.
