How to install and configure R-Tag Report Manager:
First start - Read this before you start using R-Tag Report Manager
Please check documentation for Formulas, Value List and DataSource before to start with Reports and Jobs:

1. I started R-Tag and it is asking for password. I did not set any users or passwords. How do I login ?
    Installation will create one user "BuiltIn Administrator", password is empty (no password). During the first start the program will login automatically using this user, after that it will start asking for user name and password. Please set a password for "BuiltIn Administrator" user to avoid security issues.
2. Crystal reports is missing from the list of available reports. How do I add it ?
    R-Tag is using Crystal Reports 13 runtime Service pack 8. The installation will install all required components including Crystal runtime. However. in some cases Crystal runtime might not be installed.  Here are some possible scenarios:
      - You tested few other Crystal Reports 3rd party tools and CR runtime was already installed by one of them. Check what is your current service pack version. If one of the other tools installed for example service pack 5 Crystal reports setup will detect that version 13 is already installed and will not install it again. However R-Tag will expect ver. 13 SP 8 and Crystal reports will be not available
      - You are installing R-Tag 32 bits and there is already CR runtime 13 64 bits installed, or you are installing R-Tag 64 bits and CR 32 is already installed. Very often Crystal setup will ignore the version and will not install 32 bit version if the 64 is already installed ( and 64 bit if 32 bit is already installed) 
    To fix this issue please open R-Tag installation zip file and find the folder Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4. Start CRRuntime_32bit_13_0_8.msi or CRRuntime_64bit_13_0_8.msi manually. This will install CR 13 sp8.
3. I used the button "Use Windows service" and set the user credentials for the service but the service is not working. How do I configure the windows service ?
     In order to setup the windows service for R-Tag Scheduler you need to run R-Tag Report Manager as Administrator. Find RTManager.exe, right click and click menu "Run as Administrator". Then go to Settings and select Schedule from the tree. Press the button "Set  Current Workstation as Active" and then press "Use Windows Service". Insert the user name and password , which will be used for the windows service and restart the computer.
4. Jobs work fine in R-Tag Report Manager but fail when started by R-Tag Scheduler service.    
    Windows services cannot access mapped drives. So, if your reports are placed on a network drive (or you want to export a report to a network drive) you need to use UNC path. For example a path R:\Reports\Report1.rpt will work fine for R-Tag Manager when you run the report manually but will fail when the report is started by R-Tag Scheduler service. Mapped drive R is saved in the user profile and the windows service cannot read it. R-Tag Scheduler will return error message about missing report file because drive R doesn't exists for the windows service. The UNC path for the example above looks like \\Server1\Reports\Report1.rpt. The same rule is valid when you define the export paths.
