I am using a program (QSR NVIVO8) that requires, and automatically installs, an instance of Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 (x86) as well as SQL Server Express. The SQL Server express installation proceeds smoothly. The Crystal Reports installation seems to go well, then stalls when close to the end, and reports that "An error occurred during the installation of Crystal Rports....: policy.8.0.microsoft.VC880.ATL.type="win32-policy".version="8.0.50727.1".publickeytoken="1fc8b3b9a1e8e3b".processorarchitecture="x86".
Is this a Windows 7 compatibility issue--it seems like it, as the program installs normally on my Vista machine. If so, is there any way around this (like installing an updated version of Crystal Reports myself, without actually having to purchase Visual Studio?)
Thanks very much for any help or suggestions
