After routine software and/or hardware updates Dream Reports is no longer displaying report data or is inconsistent.
Routine update can cause Dream Report configuration to reset back to is default configuration.
Ø Change the default settings by opening your runtime settings and set the Start Mode to “Run as Service” instead of “Run as Application”.
Ø Try running your report
After correcting this configuration your Dream Report functionality should return to normal.
Understanding the difference between “Run as Service” and “Run as Application”
Run as Service: The RTM will be set to start automatically as a Windows service (appears as RTM Reporting System Runtime Manager in Windows Services). Then the runtime control service will write itself into Windows startup and will be launched on a PC start.
Run as Application: The Dream Report RTM will run as an application when the user logs in to Windows. This is the default. Then the runtime control service will be launched on a user Windows login.
