1476013 - Error System Cannot Find the Path Specified when loading reports using CR Server


When trying to load a report using CR Server, you get the error "The system cannot find the path specified"


This error happens when the default folder location for CR Server is set to a path where it doesn't have access to the report file.


To solve this, change the default report path property of the RAS server to a directory higher up in the directory tree.  (e.g. C:\)

To change this property, do the following:

  1. Stop the RAS Server
  2. Right click on it and select properties
  3. Select the Parameters Tab
  4. Change the Option from "Database" to "Server"
  5. Change the Report Directory to "C:\"  (Or whatever drive the reports are located on)
  6. Click OK and restart the RAS server
