The old WebX you just needed a link and the security set to allow everyone to view it.
I have not messed with the new WebX much but it seems to require you to login first so it takes you to the login screen when you try to access anything.
you could have an iFix user that they login with and the Homepage is to the reports page, or a page of buttons to all the reports a iFix user may need to view.

The old WebX is on life support, so keep that in mind. I assume with the next release, being fully HTML5, that the old WebX will no longer be included.

Hi Geoff - we'll include it for at least this next new version, but it will be removed.

Zeekh - a Crystal report can be exported to a file as a pdf.

It is currently required for scripting for the Server object, unless they add that functionality to IIS WebX then it can't go anywhere.

Oh yeah Duh. I forget about that sometimes because you are "in" ViewX.

I am not sure what you are doing but mimic navigation works the same in ViewX and WebX. Are you putting HTTP links on hyperlink Pick Actions on your mimics? They should be SCX links WebX uses the same hyperlinks as ViewX to navigate between Mimics, not the HTTP path you see in Internet Explorer. Something Like this SCX:////CMimic/.Report
