ACT shuts down when Crystal report is launched

I'm new to the community and desperate for help.  Does anyone know why I might be getting an ACT shut down error* when I try to generate a Crystal Clear Essentials "History" report?  I'm able to select the report, enter my parameters (which include Cleared Call Result options like Call Completed, etc) and then when I hit OK, I get the below error consistently and my ACT shuts down.  


I'm the administrator for our database and therefore can see all records.  The odd thing is, if I log in as another user (Manager level) and consequently only see their records, I can run the report just fine - no error.  


I would SO appreciate any help!

If you are using ACT on Vista or windows 7 you might try right click and "run as administrator" as it might simply be a permissions issue
