Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use the following code:
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim ReportDoc As New CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument()
        Dim ReportClientDoc As ISCDReportClientDocument
        Dim poc As PrintOutputController
        Dim PrintOps As New PrintReportOptions()


        ReportClientDoc = ReportDoc.ReportClientDocument
        poc = rcd.PrintOutputController
        PrintOps.PrinterName = "Microsoft XPS Document Writer"
        PrintOps.PrinterDuplex = CrPrinterDuplexEnum.crPrinterDuplexSimplex
        PrintOps.NumberOfCopies = 1

End Sub

    2.   Compile using 64 bit mode (Note: 32 bit compile works without error)
