I'm working on a project and have run into an issue. When I run my code I get this error message:
The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.Shared.SharedUtils' threw an exception
The title of the message is "TypeInitializerException was unhandled".
I receive this error at this line of code:
this.crystalReportViewer = new CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.CrystalReportViewer();
I've been looking up ways to fix this issue, but I keep running into another issue. Everything I find about how to fix this says that the platform target should be changed to x86. All the comments that follow that advice are always positive because it seems to work for everyone, but it's not working for me. I also tried the platform target as x64. When I do that, I don't receive the previously stated error, but instead I receive a new error that reads:
The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.
The title of this message is "InvalidOperationException was unhandled". And the error is on this line:
db, of course, being set to a new OleDbConnection(connection). connection = an Access db.
Why am I receiving the first error and not the second error when platform target is x86, and vice versa if the platform target is x64?

This looks like it's the original problem:
InnerException: System.BadImageFormatException Message=Could not load file or assembly 'log4net, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
So it looks like either you're using the wrong version of log4net if it has multiple versions for different architectures, or you've just copied the assembly incorrectly. This part of the log seems relevant too:
LOG: Attempting download of new URL file:///C:/Users/Will/Desktop/Client_Manager/SyndicateII/bin/Debug/log4net.DLL. ERR: Failed to complete setup of assembly (hr = 0x8007000b). Probing terminated.
That looks like it's the file you need to check for correctness.
It could be useful to someone: if you have the option to do it, go to IIS and set the Application Pool to 32 bit applications only.
That made the trick for me.
(Of course, your application could be made to run only on 64 bit. In that case, I think the installing of the 64 bit redistributable of CrystalReports should solve the issue)
Make sure you have the correct version installed for your environment it try the 64bit installer not the 32bit one as they will both install fine but then the wrong one will cause the mentioned error.
I had the exact same problem and installing the 64bit version instead fixed things for me
I solved my problem changing the application pool identity, using the local profile and the administrator login (take a look if the password expires).
Symptoms are similar. I think that Log4net pops up because Crystal wants to log the error that has already happened. I don't have any log4net in my project, neither the dll file.
My project is compiled with AnyCpu over a 64bit server, and I already have both CRRedist x86 x64 installed.
I also tried to run in 32bit mode without any change.
Depending on the version you have installed, if you only have the 32-bit version installed you must compile to x86 or if you only have the 64-bit version installed you must compile on x64, if you have both versions installed you must compile on anycpu.
If you compile on anycpu but on the pc you have the 32-bit version it will send you an error.
