Is there a registry setting or some other setting that prevents a Crystal Report shortcut on the desktop from opening the actual report?

When a shortcut has been created on the desktop it will invoke the program but doesn't automatically open the report. You have to click on the File/Open option in order to get the report to come up which kind of defeats the purpose of the shortcut.

Just curious.

Thanks for any postings in advance.

To follow up the previous post I assume it must be a registry setting of some sort. I tried opening up a short on another machine and no issue. It opened the report.

Now what that registry setting is not sure.
