Crystal Report (8.5) is not working on win7/windows 2008 64 bit system

My application is a vb application and I am using Crystal report 8.5. It is working fine on 32 bit system and 64 bit system of Windows 2003 server. When I run the same application either on win7 64 bit or on 2008 64 bit, report does not open.
I am using vb script to access the database.

Dim objrsRecordSet 'As RecordSet

It works completely fine on Win 7 64 bit machines.

We did have some issues initially with SQL server 2008 (I think that was the version) but then a service pack for the server fixed it I think.

I have had ADO fail because SQL connectivity wasn't installed. You could try that.
We use SQL 2000 PE and then just choose to install connectivity to get it working.

I don't know if this helps you at all, but I can say it does work on modern OS's.
