    VB5 CrystalRpt Prob Linking Picture on Win7

    I have a VB5 Pgm that Uses Crystal Reports to print a form with a Linked Picture that changes with each form printed.

    Works great with all computers except Win7 computers. On a Win7 computer, the picture that prints is the one used to create the Crystal rpt form (ie the new picture does not display). My VB5 pgm loads the correct picture into a folder,(shared, permissions and security set to Everyone) and the linking diaglog boxes display when the report runs, but the correct picture does not link in.

    I need help bad!

    thanks

    Are pictures located somewhere under the "Program Files" folder. If so, it may be access is being denied. Try moving the pictures to some place like "C:\myapp\pictures".

    Not sure thats the problem but it's worth a try.

    I put the picture in a folder on the "C" drive but the incorrect picture showed(ie. the correct picture that was supposed to be linked in did not come in).

    This is a problem only on Win7 computers!!

    What else could the problem be??
