I am having a problem with Crystal Reports. I am getting Object referene not set to an instance of an object. I have been trying to solve this for a very long time trying this and that.. the latest said to change the string in the Virtual Roots..
I don't have Virtual Roots in Parameters... it is supposedly to do with IIS..

What OS you running? this has something to do with FPSE or ? if it not there, you can create it right?

I am running Windows 2003. I don't know how to create it.

huh? does the solution your found about modifying this reg key applies to IIS6 ?
the solution never tell you what to create or ? is the app design for IIS6 in the first place ??

Here is the link to the solution I found.. http://diamond.businessobjects.com/node/235. The first part of the solution didn't make a difference, so I started to apply the second part "additional information", that is when I realized I don't have "Virtual
Roots". The error I am getting when I try to view my report is "object reference not set to an instance of an object". I keep trying to get crystal to work, because if I can get one report to work I can get them all to work.

I would contact Business Objects, they support Crystal reports. There is a runtime that has to be installed for a lot of CR stuff to work properly, I"m not guru, but know Crystal Reports is a 3rd party add-on.

Best is talk to the vendor :) if not just try the suggestion. virtual root is just a folder, so if it's not there, create your own then create stated reg key underneath the /virtual root folder.
