I have an ASP.NET application which utilizes CR for VS. The reports are not generating when I run them on the build server via the ASP.NET application.
The reports seem to hang on the ReportDocument.Load() method.
There is no exception thrown and there are no logs in the event viewer to explain why this is occuring. I have logged information to a text file and the location of report it is trying to load is correct.
I am wondering if i have installed the correct package on the build server.
I installed the 64 bit Redist Installation on the build server. (The build server is 64 bit).Is this the correct package to install on the build and prod server to get Crystal Reports working?
Does anyone know what the diffrence betweent the following installation files for crystal reports is? and which one should be installed on production.?The SAP website does not give a very good description of each install file.
I need any help I can get at this point.

I believe you have downloaded the correct installation files. To recap:
http://downloads.businessobjects.com/akdlm/cr4vs2010/CRforVS_redist_install_64bit_13_0_1.zip (for 64 bit machine)
http://downloads.businessobjects.com/akdlm/cr4vs2010/CRforVS_redist_install_32bit_13_0_1.zip (for 32 bit machine)
These two are the redistributable packages. You can download full package from the below link as well

To solve this I deployed a report I knew was working from another application. This report worked.
I then re created my report bit by bit and tested it on the build server until I could find out what was cause the ReportDocument.Load() method to hang.
It turns out that setting the Report to landscape was cause it to hang.
To stop the ReportDocument.Load() method from hanging I installed a printer driver on it. This is a weird solution. If anyone can explain why this worked and why the ReportDocument.Load()
method was hanging on reports set to landscape I would appreciate it.
A little bit of further information the Build Server was Windows 2008 R2.
