The client side viewer is installed and working correctly since I can see reports from other servers running server2003.
When I try to run any report I'm seeing 1 of 2 error messages in the browser:
Connection to Report Server Failed
An Invalid Message Encountered.
To start with, after installing CR7 on the server it wasn't able to create the samples directory/website on the default website. Install logs show all attempts using confiis4.exe to setup the default website samples failed to initialize COM etc. I did try to set this up manually but it fails when launching a sample report in the same way that my client app fails.
If I stop the crystal web page and image services, the error messages don't change so I'm assuming the problem is happening before it tries to utilize those services.
I've opened up security access to everyone everywhere but so far it doesn't make a difference.
I see nothing in any event logs.
The biggest challenge I have right now is I'm not getting any useful feedback like detailed error messages, logs or event entries. So, I'm essentially just doing blind troubleshooting.
