1205023 - Performance degradation in opening certain Crystal Reports on different machines


The same Crystal Report XI R2 report opens much slower on some computers than on others. In some instances the degradation is 10 fold.


Page Setup on a specific computer-printer configuration affect the rendering during the opening of the Crystal Report.


The solution is to optimize the rendering of the Crystal Report.
1) Go to File > Page Setup
2) Check the "No Printer" checkbox in the Printer Options 
3) Save the report and reopen
The Crystal Report should now open much faster on the computer, which previously showed performance degradation.
