Default Load Report Failed Error

Hi everyone.

I'm trying to load a Crystal Report into a vb.net page. I have a reportviewer on the aspx page and I have the following code:

Public Class TyDet
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

#Region " Web Form Designer Generated Code "

    'This call is required by the Web Form Designer.
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> Private Sub InitializeComponent()

    End Sub
    Protected WithEvents ReportViewer As CrystalDecisions.Web.CrystalReportViewer

    'NOTE: The following placeholder declaration is required by the Web Form Designer.
    'Do not delete or move it.
    Private designerPlaceholderDeclaration As System.Object

    Private Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Init
        'CODEGEN: This method call is required by the Web Form Designer
        'Do not modify it using the code editor.
        End Sub

#End Region

In addition, I have set the databinding to the name of the report which is also located on the server. It shows up in design view, but once it is executed, it gives this error:

Server Error in '/CPS' Application.

Load report failed.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Can someone please tell me what the problem is? Thank you.

I had this problem also.

To solve it I had to allow the report file to be shared to the Web in the IIS.

Hope this helps.

What do you mean exactly by "allow it to be shared to the web in IIS"?

I'm having this same issue...everything works in the designer preview, and it also works in ASP.net Development Server (even in the browser), just not when I'm using IIS.

Getting Load report failed and/or The Report Application Server failed error message?
************************************************** **
************************************************** **

How I FINALLY (after many days) fixed it.
************************************************** **

Uninstall ANY/every version of crystal and / or Business Objects software
through add/remove programs that may exist on your computer.

Uninstall vs.net 2005 through add/remove programs and all of its components.

Uninstall ANY merge module installations you have done.

The command below, done from the command prompt, will generate
a text file listing all installed, shared dll's that are
listed in the registry (Good for seeing just what is going on
in your system).

REG query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\SharedDLLs >dll.txt

Looking at the dll.txt generated in the step above, you will
notice there are still numerious Business Objects, and/or Crystal reports
dll's registered (Even though everything is uninstalled).

After uninstalling anything/everything dealing with
BO or Crystal, manually delete anything remaining of these two
from Program files, and \program files\common.

Once you manually delete anything/everything dealing with
BO or Crystal, download and run SHAREDLL.

Running sharedll.exe (from a COMMAND PROMPT) will scan the registry for all
registered, shared dll's.

It will check to see if the file (DLL) that is registered actually exists.
If not, you are given the option to delete the entry or DELETE ALL
bad entries.

Once you have deleted all bad registry dll entries, reboot (no big deal deleting these,
cause the files don't exist ANYWAY!).

Reinstall vs.net 2005
Reinstall crystal reports crxir2 developer

Everything now works.
