 Applies to:  ReCrystallize Pro Web Wizard for Crystal Reports  version 10.x, 11.x

 

Synopsis:

Analysis Server (0x80004005)
Access denied. Please check directory setting for files you can access.

or

More Information: 

This error can occur when the Report Application Server/Crystal Enterprise Embedded is not configured to access report files in the directory where your .rpt file is located.  

 

Solution:

Configure the Report Application Server/Crystal Enterprise Embedded to access files in the directory where your report file is located.  You may wish to configure access to wwwroot or the root of your drive.  Because subdirectories are included, this will provide access to reports in any folder beneath this point in the directory tree.
