            TableLogOnInfos crtableLogoninfos = new TableLogOnInfos();
            TableLogOnInfo crtableLogoninfo = new TableLogOnInfo();
            ConnectionInfo crConnectionInfo = new ConnectionInfo();
            Tables CrTables;

            crConnectionInfo.ServerName = "YOUR SERVERNAME";
            crConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "DATABASE NAME";

            crConnectionInfo.Password = "PASSWORD";

            CrTables = cryRpt.Database.Tables;
            foreach (CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Table CrTable in CrTables)
            {
                crtableLogoninfo = CrTable.LogOnInfo;
                crtableLogoninfo.ConnectionInfo = crConnectionInfo;
                CrTable.ApplyLogOnInfo(crtableLogoninfo);
            }

            cryRpt.Refresh();
            cryRpt.PrintToPrinter(2, true, 1, 2);

        }

}

cryRpt.Load(PUT CRYSTAL REPORT PATH HERE\\CrystalReport1.rpt");
The Crystal Reports file path in your project files location, there you can see CrystalReport1.rpt . So give the full path name of Crystal Reports file like c:\projects\crystalreports\CrystalReport1.rpt

  crConnectionInfo.ServerName = "YOUR SERVERNAME";

crConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "DATABASE NAME";
crConnectionInfo.UserID = "USERID";
crConnectionInfo.Password = "PASSWORD";
