A few months back, the ERP think-tank at 90 Minds solved a common problem online that we’d been solving over the phone for our customers. If your company has been experiencing an aggravatingly slow start-up in Crystal Reports for Sage 100 ERP 2013, this easy-to-follow tip should help. Thanks to the folks at 90 Minds (especially Brett Zimmerman) for posting this solution online.

The problem:

Crystal Reports is SLOW to open, and is taking a minute or more when you try to open it from inside Sage 100 ERP (after you click the designer button).

The fix:

Uncheck “Check for Updates on Start Up” on the Help menu inside Crystal Reports.

The other fixes:

Okay, you unchecked the “Check for Updates…” option but Crystal Reports is still starting slowly? Try these solutions:

  • Restart Sage 100 ERP.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Contact SWK Tech for help by clicking the “Want to Know More?” button below.
  • Got a problem running your reports?

    If you’ve recently switched to a new printer or switched to an entirely paperless system,try this tip from Tina Kirsch Hudak, a Software Consultant at Schneider Downs:

    “I had a similar issue related to the [fact that the] printer saved on the report no longer existed. It occurred when running reports in [Sage 100] ERP or when opening [a] report. From print setup, you can check a box for no printer and [then] save the report. That help[ed] tremendously as well.”

    Thanks to 90 Minds’ Brett Zimmerman and Schneider Downs’ Tina Kirsch Hudak, that problem should never be a problem again. However, if it is, you know that SWK Technologies is always here to help you.
