While installing crystal report server 11,i am facing an erro which says Invalid Key code Error.I had raised this issue to SAP customer support and attaching the conversation that we had.PLEASE HELP me to resolve the issue.
MAILS--Dear Mohit,
Thanks for the patience.
We have received the below update from the Licensing Team.
You received your permanent key in respect of these licenses - the key is  for Crystal Reports Server XI.
You did not purchase these licenses for Crystal Reports Server, but purchased it for Crystal Reports and a 5-named user license for Crystal Reports was included as a special offer.  The software included was version XIR2, but you elected to use version XI instead and received key .
You would need to enroll the licenses in maintenance if you want to upgrade them.
In case of any queries please create a ticket via the Service Market Place.

They cannot decide to upgrade now - they must enrol these licenses in maintenance if they want to upgrade them.

Please help us to resolve the issue as early as possible.
My contact number:
If you need any further information do let me know

  By design, the product is not able to be installed under the superuser account.
1.  Create a new user and specify a home directory for the user without a quota set.
2.  Copy or move the installation files to a directory that the new user can read.  I suggest you move the installation files directly into the new user's home directory.
3.  Logon as the new user (or su - newuser)
4.  run the installation shell script using that new user's account.
NOTE:  Ensure the system meets the requirements from the supported platforms documents.

  • Error 1305 while installing Crystal Reports 2008, JavaSDK

    While installing Crystal Reports from the original media on a new Lenovo Thinkpad running Windows XP Pro SP3 I get the following error while installing:
    Error 1305: Error reading from File: c:\program files\Business Objects\javasdk\jre\audio\ Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.
    I have the option to retry or cancel, obviously cancel exits the installer. Retry just fails again. I have tried to access the file (which does exist) and I cannot because it is in use. I used Sysinternals process explorer to find out what has the file in use and it is msiexec.exe which is the Microsoft Installer service which is running in order to install CR2008.
    I have tried restarting, setting permissions on the file and folder, uninstalling and reinstalling Java VM from Sun. I even tried killing msiexec (which killed the install). I even tried taking out all reference to java in a custom install.
    I am at a loss on what to do next. Any help would be appreciated.

  • After install Crystal Report Server 2011, can not access control tools

    Afte install Crystal Report Server 2011, can not access control tools from web or from application.
    My server OS is Windows 2008 R2 SP1. I follow the default setting. How to fix it?
    Error message is above.

    Is Tomcat started?  On your Start menu you should have an option to get to "Tomcat  Configuration" or, under the CRS menu you can run the "Central Configuration Manager" to start Tomcat.
    What URL are you using to connect to the web app?  By default Tomcat runs on port 8080 so your URL should look something like this:  "http://<servername>:8080/BOE/CMC" or "http://<servername>:8080/BOE/BI".
    If Tomcat is running and you're trying to access it from another computer, check to see if the Windows Firewall is turned on for the server - if it is, turn it off for "Domain" access.
    If Tomcat won't start, go to the folder where Tomcat is installed and then look in the "logs" folder.  There should be a file called "stderr.log" which you can open in Notepad to see what types of errors might be occurring (you can ignore any errors having to do with "persisted sessions".)  If there are other errors, post in the BI Platform space to get assistance.

  • Cannot install Crystal Reports Server 2008 and Client Tools on same machine

    I am having trouble setting up Crystal Reports Server 2008 with Client Tools on a new Windows 2003 SP 2 machine. The Server 2008 package installs OK (built-in MySQL server, built-in Tomcat 5.5 server). Reports run okay. But my customer wants to run reports that use Salesforce as a data source, so I tried to install Crystal Reports Server 2008 Client Tools (needed  for Salesforce support, apparently). I receive this error:
    'Business Objects product detected: cannot continue with install'. Installation of Client Tools immediately terminates.
    Oddly enough, when I uninstalled Server 2008, the Client Tools installed successfully. Then I tried installing Server 2008, and I got the same error message as with Server 2008. What the heck?
    Any ideas on how I can get Server 2008 and Server 2008 Client Tools to live in harmony on the same machine? We were able to do this with a (otherwise overloaded) Win2K3 server before.
    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Typically the client tools are installed with enterprise by default. If not then you would want to use add/remove in control panel and select them. The installer thinks you are trying to install enterprise on top of itself and thus the error.

  • I installed Crystal Reports server 2008, i'm geting server not started erro

        I'm getting error with server not started or not available error (FWM 01003). If i check in CCM, i don't see any entry for CMS server entry. How to start CMS server??? Please advise me. i installed trail version of crystal reports server 2008.
    thanks in advance!!!

    I am a consultant for Business Object products and experienced the same exact problem. We were installing Business Objects Edge, which is similar to Crystal Reports Server 2008, with MS SQL Server 2000 SP4 for the CMS System Database on a server that was named <Numbers>-<Letters>.
    We discovered that some scripts that the installation and CMS run fail when the Server Name of the Business Objects Edge Server start with a number. When the CMS System Database is setup, a table called CMS_IdNumbers6 is created. It should have three columns, NameId, IdName and third column that is named after the server where you are installing Crystal Reports Server 2008, Business Objects Edge or Business Objects Enterprise. This column is called <ServerName>_iad_intensive_int_6400.
    This column fails to get created when your server name starts with a number and subsequent scripts that insert records into this column fail. Renaming the server where we were installing Business Objects Edge to <Letters><Numbers> (no dashes either to be safe) solved the problem. We were successfully able to install Business Objects Edge. Please note: This is the server where you are installing Crystal Reports Server 2008 that needs to be renamed and NOT the MS SQL Server--just making a note because we had to go back and forth with our server team a couple of times on this point.

  • Which server do I install Crystal Reports Server On?

    I'm new to crystal reports server and preparing to install 2008.  I've been through the Crystal Reports Server 2008 Quick  Installation Guide for Window and it does not refer to which server it should be installed on.  I'm currently running a SQL server Business One is located on, a web server for Web Tools and an Exchange Server.  I'm assuming I would install it on my SQL server that has SAP located there also.  Is there a recomended location or suggestions for specific location?

    not sure what you mean but let's summarize:
    Task: Building reports that fetch data from SAP sources
    Software needed: Crystal Reports Designer 2008 + BOBJ int.Kit for SAP (client installation option)
    Task: Publishing and scheduling CR reports that fetch data from SAP sources
    Software needed: BO Edge XI 3.1 or BO Enterprise XI 3.1 + BOBJ int.Kit for SAP (server installation option)
    You mentioned that you want to install Crystal Reports Server 2008. It provides almost the same functionality as BO Enterprise and BO Edge but it DOES NOT support scheduling and publishing reports in the InfoView (kind of BOBJ portal) which fetch data from SAP sources.
    I would suggest to install the BOBJ server software on a separate machine, as long as the machine resides on the same domain as your SAP server.

    Hi Alok
    Are you logged in as Administrator?
    If not try logging in as Administrator,is still the issue persists then you need to manually uninstall Crystal Reports and reinstall it again.
    This issue happens because the installation of Crystal Reports has not been successful, despite a message stating that it has been  successfully installed.
    Manual Uninstalling Process:
    Crystal Reports XI is installed on your computer. You need to manually uninstall Crystal Reports XI for one of the following reasons:
    u2022 To verify that all Crystal Reports XI components have been completely removed prior to installing a later version of Crystal Reports.
    u2022 To remove the remaining Crystal Reports XI components that have not been removed using the 'Add/Remove Programs' command (Start > Settings > Control Panel).
    u2022 To remove the remaining Crystal Reports XI components that have not been removed using the Setup.exe file from Crystal Reports XI installation CD.
    How do you manually uninstall Crystal Reports XI?
    Before getting started, uninstall Crystal Reports XI by launching the Setup.exe file from the installation CD or by using the 'Add/Remove Programs' command. If either of these methods fails to remove all Crystal Reports directories, files and registry keys, then continue with the resolution of this article.
    This resolution can be applied if Crystal Reports XI is the only software installed on the computer that uses the Business Objects directories, files and registry keys.
    For example, Crystal Analysis, Crystal Enterprise and BusinessObjects Enterprise XI are applications that may share the same directories, files and registry keys.
    Removing these directories, files and registry keys may cause other software to function incorrectly.
    1. To manually uninstall Crystal Reports XI, delete the following directories:
    u2022 C:\Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\3.0
    u2022 C:\Program Files\Business Objects
    Do not remove the directory C:\Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\3.0 if you have BusinessObjects Enterprise XI or Crystal Reports Server XI installed. These files are shared by both applications and removal of these files will cause Business ObjectsEnterprise XI and Crystal Reports Server XI to function incorrectly.
    2. Delete the following registry keys:
    The following resolution involves editing the registry. Using the Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall the Microsoft Windows operating system. Use the Registry Editor at your own risk.
    For information on how to edit the registry key, view the 'Changing Keys And Values' online Help topic in the Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
    It is strongly recommended that you make a backup copy of the registry files (System.dat and User.dat on Win9x computers) before you edit the registry.
    u2022 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 11.0\Crystal Reports\
    u2022 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Business Objects\Suite 11.0\Crystal Reports
    u2022 HKEY_USERS\S-#-#-##-...-####\Software\Business Objects\Suite 11.0\Crystal Reports
    (The number signs (#) represent a series of numbers that are different on each computer.)
    After making changes to the registry, restart the affected service or application as required.
    Hope this Helps,
