1212196 - Err Msg: "Physical Database Not Found" using Active Server Pages (ASP)


A report based on an ADO (ActiveX Data Objects) recordset was run from a Crystal Reports ASP application using the Crystal Automation Server. However, the report was not displayed and the following message was displayed:


"Physical Database Not Found"


The ASP application was originally created using Crystal Reports version 7 (Maintenance Release 1) and then when the Crystal web components were upgraded to version 8 the application was also upgraded (see Note 1211733). 

The P2smon.dll file installed with Crystal Reports version 8.0 requires a dependency file, Msvcp60.dll, that was not required in previous versions of Crystal. This file did not exist on the web server computer but once a copy of the file was copied to this computer the error message was eliminated.
