Crystal Reports - Request canceled by user

Problem: You get this error message when programmatically printing a Crystal Reports Report "Error in file [filepath].rpt - Request canceled by user"

Solution: This happens because your default printer is not available - make sure it is online and available.

OK, this post sucks, but eventually it will be useful to someone in trouble with Crystal Reports. By the way Crystal Reports sucks too - if you wanna read about the reasons why chek this post out http://dotnetbutchering.blogspot.com/2008/02/net-vc-7-good-reasons-to-hate-crystal.html .

Thanks I hope this solves my problem. What report software do you like?

Thanks, this helped solve an issue I was having with a program running on windows 2008 R2. Print redirection would not work because of the default printer selection.
