Crystal Report CRViewer and runtime installation

Hello everybody,

We use Crystal Report 9 Developer English.

We developed a Visual Basic 6 application under a Windows 2003 server computer using the crviewer object integrated into visual basic code.

We need to install the run time version of the application in Windows NT 4 sp6a computers.

We created an installation kit by the InstallShield of Visual Studio 6.

We can install the kit in the Windows Nt computers, but when we run the application it crashs when we try to produce a report. It looks like the runtime dll of Crystal Report 9 have not been correctly installed by the installation kit or are missing.

What dll we need to install more? How to install them? How to include them into the kit? Do u have a general installer of the runtime dll for Crystal Report 9?

It is possible to install all the Crystal Report 9 dll manually and where to copy ?

Please give us an help because our work it is stopped now since a week. We didnu2019t find any solution.

The best solution for us should be to have a dedicated installation kit for crystal report runtime dll.

Thanks a lot

Maurizio Carnesecchi

FWIW, we use InstallShield12 to build an installer for our app built in C++ and with CR9. That method has worked fairly well. I must admit that I have not tested on NT4 in a long time though and I doubt that anyone from BO will help you since there is no help to be had from MS in this case.
