1215038 - Err Msg: "Load Report Failed" when loading a report in an ASP.NET application

Symptom

An ASP.NET application uses Crystal Reports for

Visual Studio .NET as the reporting development tool.

When you attempt to run the application and

preview the report, the following error message

appears:

"Load Report Failed"

Permissions have been checked and the ASPNET local

user has full control to the folder where the

report files reside.

Why is this error message

appearing and how do you resolve it?

Resolution

In this situation, the application is able to

access the parent folder containing the report.

However, the application cannot access the report

as the report has different permissions from those

of the parent folder.

Since the report file does not allow for

inheritable permissions to propagate from the

parent folder to the report, the application cannot

access the report.

To resolve this error message, right-click the

report in Windows explorer and go to the

'Properties' dialog box. Under the 'Security' tab,

allow for the report to inherit permissions from

the parent folder.
