Default Running examples in text

I have been unable to successfully run the downloaded examples. I have made the directory listed in the text and put the samples in it. I have copied the database, Xtreme, to the location (in C:\program files, etc.) specified in the text.

When I try to run an example, I get a Login failed exception. Sometimes (before I get the exception), I am presented with a LogIn message box. The code has statements setting the login and password. I certainly haven't modified that code. And entering the same Id and password in the message box is not successful.

I am using Visual Studio .Net 2003. This is my first experience with Crystal Reports. All of the examples have to be reformatted (by the installed 2003 software), so I gather that they were written and distributed before 2003 Visual Studio.

I will appreciate Help. J Lee

I ran into this problem too. I overcame it by finding some code on http://www.planet-source-code.com (below), but I was hoping to find an explanation for this, or maybe an adjustment to the book's code by the author that showed his preferred method of dealing with this since I am a CR newb.

    ''' <summary>
    ''' Add a reportviewer control to the page - call it crv
    ''' Add a reportdocument control to the page
    ''' Select the report you designed (EmployeeHours)
    ''' use the code here to login and show report in browser
    ''' </summary>
    ''' <param name="sender"></param>
    ''' <param name="e"></param>
    ''' <remarks></remarks>
    ''' <history>

    Private Sub crv_load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles crv.Load
        Dim crReport As ReportDocument
        crReport = New EmployeeHours
        crv.ReportSource = crReport
    End Sub

    Private Sub ApplyLogOnInfoTo(ByRef crReport As ReportDocument)
        Dim crLogonInfo As CrystalDecisions.Shared.TableLogOnInfo
        crLogonInfo = crReport.Database.Tables(0).LogOnInfo
                      ' what if more than one table is used?
        crLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = "servername"
        crLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "dbname"
        crLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.UserID = "sa"
        crLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.Password = "sapwd"
        crReport.Database.Tables(0).ApplyLogOnInfo(crLogon Info)
    End Sub
