Hide db login info in crystal report after migrate to VS2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i have a windows application in .net 2005 upgraded to .net 2012. the old version is running fine on a Win2003 Server. database is 2005 express on Win2003 Server.

    i have upgraded this application to vs2012. On my machine (Win7 - SQL Express 2005) the application is running fine with .net 2012.

    But on A Win2016 Server (the new engine for crystal report has been installed), all crystal reports display db login window and db name cant be seen although it has been provided. i have installed express 2012 on win2016 server for driver.

    i'm using this code:

       MyReport reportDelivery = new MyReport ();
       reportDelivery.DataSourceConnections[0].SetConnection(Globals.DB_Loc,Globals.DBName.ToUpper() , Globals.ReadUser_Name, Globals.ReadPassWord);
       reportDelivery.RecordSelectionFormula = ReportCondition;
    //ReportCondition is a string that has a value for //filtering records
       Viewer.ReportSource = reportDelivery;

    all above code is running fine with old version on any machines. is there something i have to change after upgrade ?

    sorry if this is not the proper place for this question.

  • i have also tried the following method for report connection settings :

     private void SetReportConnection(CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportClass report)
                ConnectionInfo connInfo = new ConnectionInfo();
                connInfo.ServerName = Globals.DB_Loc;
                connInfo.DatabaseName = Globals.DBName;
                connInfo.UserID = Globals.ReadUser_Name;
                connInfo.Password = Globals.ReadPassWord;
                Tables crTables; Database crDatabase; TableLogOnInfo crTableLogonInfo;   
                TableLogOnInfo tableLogOnInfo = new TableLogOnInfo();
                tableLogOnInfo.ConnectionInfo = connInfo;
                crDatabase = report.Database; crTables = crDatabase.Tables;
                foreach (CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Table crTable in crTables)
                    crTableLogonInfo = crTable.LogOnInfo;
                    crTableLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo = connInfo;

    but useless.

    always, i'm getting the same window :

    any idea ?
