Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

For some strange reason, Crystal XI remains open after the app has been closed in Windows 7. To work around this error, simply exit Crystal Reports and then end the CRW32.exe *32 process in the Windows Task Manager.  The message will disappear when you reopen the report.
