Hi! I have created my program in vb.net(visual studio 2008). However after making program I have created setup file of my program by using advance installer 7.7. As a result those crystal report files(CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.dll and CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework.dll and CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore.dll and CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.dll and CrystalDecisions.Shared.dll and CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.dll) were automatically added there in my setup file. However when I install my program there in my client`s pc everything works fine but crystal report doesn't work. When I try to show reports there in reportviewer it shows me long error message which says
 
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

So would you please tell me how should I get rid of this problem? I have to solve this problem as early as possible else my client will be disappointed. Please help me.

Sounds like you didn't installed Crystal Report runtime framework for VS 2008 on your application server. So install that.

Reinstall Crystall Reports on client's PC. It worked for me.
 
Also check if .NET framework is installed on client's machine.

Based on the errors you got, it seems to be a mix of missing Crystal (you probably distributed the wrong version) and missing .NET version (the target machine does not seem to have .NET 4).

hmm yesterday, I have installed .net 4.
And today i have added the CrystalReports11_5_NET.msm to my setup project... Do You know which distrubtion I need?
Nishant Sivakumar at 23-Jan-11 5:32am
   
Well your error message indicates 10.5. So perhaps that's what you need to distribute (you are currently distributing 11.5 apparently).
The.Z at 23-Jan-11 5:52am
   
Okay, now i loading the Cr10 modules...
Is it possible to show reports in an other way?
(Not with the crystalreportViewer?)
 
But for other programms, I have the CrystalReports XI Client installed... Why do I need this additional modules?
Nishant Sivakumar at 23-Jan-11 5:57am
   
It's possible that for this particular program/project someone incorrectly added a reference to the older Crystal version too. You could probably just change that project to use the same version as all the other projects and then you will not need the old version in your setup.
The.Z at 23-Jan-11 6:40am
   
hmm how can I change the project-version?
I have Crystal Reports XI installed...
My project's CR-DLLs are:
CrystalDecisions.CrystalReportsEnginge V. 13.0.2000.0
CrystalDecisions.ReportSource V. 13.0.2000.0
CrysatlDecisions.Shared V. 13.0.2000.0
CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms V. 13.0.2000.0
...and so on...
Nishant Sivakumar at 23-Jan-11 6:45am
   
Ok, my 10.5 comment was based on the original question, your case seems to be different.
 
I did some googling, and this thread seems to be on a related problem:
