VS2005 Crystal Reports Deployment Problem


C

Code Monkey

I've just developed an Windows application that uses Crystal Reports
(v10 ? - the version that ships with VS2005).

Whilst the application works fine - reports can be viewed on the
development machine, when I create a setup project (which includes the
Crystal reports merge module), and deploy this setup file to another
machine (a fresh install of WinXP Pro with SP2), the reporting section
does not work...

How do I get the report viewer to work correctly on another machine?
The error I'm getting is:

************** Exception Text **************
System.Exception: Load report failed. --->

Thanks in advance.

Problem solved.

Installed the CRRedist2005_x86.msi file on the non-development PC -
located in

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\CrystalReports


everything works as it should.
