I RECEIVE THIS MESSAGE WHEN I LOAD CRYSTAL REPORT ON ASP.NET ON WINDOWS 7 AND VS 2008.

An HTTP 500 error often means that your application has thrown an Exception of some kind.
If possible, you might try running it from the same machine as the server -- that might allow the app to display more details about the error.
Otherwise, you can look in the Windows Error log or the application error log to see if they have more details.
If that doesn't work, you may need to temporarily enable debugging for the site, to allow it to generate a meaningful stack trace....

Adding to the previous response.
If you are using IE, by default, HTTP Friendly error is enabled. This means even when the server sent the error it will not display it.
In my opinion, this setting has no real purpose and all web developer should have this disabled.

Basically, this error occurs when i try to access the web site with the ip address on the server hosting (but when i use localhost it works)

Please try to add IP address to IIS 7 all unassigned list (Select website in the tree of websites and click Bindings in Actions pane).
You also can use command line to configure it. For example:
netsh http add iplisten ipaddress=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
For more information about netsh command line, see
I look forward to receiving your test results.
