My Windows App installer has the Merge Modules (I am using VS2010 with CR13) and I am still recieving CRPE failed to load issue, The file DOES exist in the referenced folder as well.

Here is the error, please help, it should not be this hard to distribute an internal application to other PC's within my department without a server or the internet involved.

The error is happening on the production machine which is a 32 bit machine. The app is compiled using x86 specs and I am using .Net Framework 4 full version.

Use ProcessMonitor and look for Access Denied errors and dll's that could not be found/loaded.

Thank you
