Hi, after I installed IE8 all my intranet reports after I click on print button stop working. Once I click the button the popup window appears and inmediatly closes.
On my other machines, windows server 2003 with IE8 and XP IE7 the print control works fine, I also disable all the security options on the IE8 in vista to see if there is any popup blocker or Activex security issue, but its the same, I enable all the options
to be able to execute activex of any kind and still cant print.
The printing mode of the reports are ActiveX
I dont have any clue about what is happening, and also I didnt find other people with this problem.
any help will be appreciated.

I just installed IE8 also, and I'm now having the same problem. Did you find a solution to your issue?

Hi, yes I find a solution, I think its not the best one but my reports are working now,
you have to do this:
copy this code and save as html file , open it in IE8
var prm = new Object();
prm.codebase = "http://resources.businessobjects.com/support/downloads/microsoft/vs_2005/ActiveXControls/PrintControl.cab";
prm.url = "";
prm.postbackdata = "";
prm.title = "form1";
prm.maxpage = "1";
prm.sendpostdataonce = "0";
window.showModalDialog('/aspnet_client/System_Web/2_0_50727/CrystalReportWebFormViewer4/html/crystalprinthost.html', prm, 'dialogHeight:250px;dialogWidth:300px;scroll:no;status:no');
it will prompt to install the vs2005 version of the activex control, that works fine for me, if you have a better solution please share it!!!

Try this @ least it worked on the client computers .Add to Trusted Sites the web site from which you are getting the report. Open internet explorer -->Tools-->Internet Options-->Security Tab-->Trusted
Sites Security Zone -->Click Sites--> Add Site by typing the web site address---> Click Add -->OK then close the internet Options dialog box.
Hope this will help.
